Olduvai Capital

Attracting private capital to close Africa’s climate finance gap is essential for global climate action efforts, but existing flows are lagging in speed and scale.

Olduvai Capital seeks to overcome the barriers to scaling climate finance by bringing deep knowledge of diverse local African markets while leveraging concessional climate finance in a blended finance structure to de-risk institutional investors.

Olduvai Capital is a boutique investment firm focusing on alternative credit solutions in Africa. Our thesis is that alternative credit is an untapped investment opportunity in Africa, offering diversification, attractive risk-adjusted returns, and impact. Our team has a proven track record of investing in Africa, deploying institutional capital across credit and equity markets through market cycles.
