2nd cohort of the Private Investment in Adaptation Bootcamp (PrivABoo) kicks off

During June and July 2023, Private Adaptation Finance (PAF) organized the kick-off events  for the second cohort of the Private Adaptation Investment Bootcamp (PrivABoo) program. The main objective of these events was to formally launch the program and outline the activities and expected outcomes for 19 selected small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Pakistan.

The Private Adaptation Investment Bootcamp (PrivABoo) is an 18-month program implemented by The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The program will be implemented in Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, and Pakistan, with the objective of mobilizing investment in the private sector to companies with business models that contribute to climate change adaptation and are gender-relevant.

These SMEs were selected through a rigorous and transparent process and will receive investment readiness support provided by GreenTec Capital and participate in a closed peer-to-peer learning program on climate change adaptation until December 2024. During the program, these SMEs will improve their investment readiness and will be matched with investors with the objective of raising capital and investment by the end of the program.
