BusinessMinds developed the BLOOM Accelerator Fund to address the gap between available impact capital and investable projects and companies. Existing Impact Investors typically avoid start-ups and early stage ventures, whilst these ventures struggle to access the seed / venture capital they need. In addition, the enabling environment / supporting ecosystem that these ventures need is lacking in many African countries. BLOOM addresses these shortcomings by combining impact investing with business acceleration.
BLOOM invests in early stage agro food & beverage businesses and combines capital with strategic advice, sector expertise and African operational experience to accelerate these high growth potential ventures to sizeable investable propositions for mainstream funds and strategic investors.
