A bit more about the Zambia Impact Investment Summit

In 2022 Impact Capital Africa and The National Advisory Board for Impact Investment Zambia (NABII) joined together to host this in-person event for impact investors, growth-focused businesses, government, civil society, donors, and other agencies involved in the impact investment sphere.

NABII is a cross-sector driven organisation that works to accelerate the growth and effectiveness of the impact investment ecosystem in Zambia.

Impact Capital Africa acts as a conduit between world-wide impact investors and growth-focused Sub-Saharan African impact businesses, supporting the impact investment process end-to-end.

Our partnership strengthens the impact investment ecosystem in Zambia and brings greater capacity to the upcoming Summit. NABII, Impact Capital Africa and partners are excited to present a fresh pipeline of businesses ready for investment, drive collective action on pressing issues in the impact investment ecosystem, provide networking opportunities and show you all that Zambia has to offer!

Our panels feature leaders in industry, regulation, investment, services provision, and innovation in Zambia.

High value round tables

Round table discussions offer a great networking avenue that give all attendees the opportunity to share with, and learn from, a group of peers. Our roundtables are moderated by carefully selected ecosystem enablers who keep conversation flowing and facilitate honest discussion.

SME showcasing

ZIIS is a dynamic event: we want all players to be networking, engaging, sharing and learning. Throughout the conference exciting investment ready businesses in our pipeline are showcased through quickfire pitches, keeping the energy high, and the focus on making deals.

Networking breakouts

ICA is all about building networks and getting deals done. Many of our attendees will have interacted in the lead up to the conference using our Impact Starter platform. But we know how critical the personal element of deal-discussion and relationship building is, so we incorporate timely networking breakout and discussion segments throughout the conference.
