Issam Chleuh

Capital and Funds Mobilization in Africa

"My vision in founding the Africa Impact Group is to become the Boston Consulting Group or Bain & Company of Impact Investing. Today, we are one of the top advisory firms and brokers for Impact Investing in Africa. We are working on big engagements and deals alongside partners like IFC/World Bank and the Dangote Group, to cite a few. Within two years, we have accomplished a lot of milestones. We are very far from where we want to be. In five years, I see Africa Impact Group as the leading Impact Investing advisory, research, news, and data group in Africa. In 25 years, I see Africa Impact Group as the leading impact investing group globally. As Tupac said, “Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.” I beg, let me dream." - Issam Chleuh
