Deadline: 24 January 2019

If you wish to be eligible to pitch your project in the upcoming Asia Forum for Climate and Clean Energy Financing, to be held in Singapore in late 2019. Then, please submit your proposal for climate and clean energy projects and businesses in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.

Selected projects will receive no-cost coaching by professional consultants and, once they are investment-ready, benefit from PFAN’s Investment Facilitation services.

The coaching support provided through the PFAN Project Development and Financing Initiative for Climate & Clean Energy in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia will help entrepreneurs develop and refine a financially viable and socially and environmentally sustainable business plan, to be employed in subsequent investor outreach. After completing the coaching phase, the projects will receive assistance in terms of financial mobilization, deal making facilitation and other follow-up support.
