Venture Capital

Overview

IFC's Venture Capital group invests in ventures and growth stage companies that offer innovative technologies or business models geared at emerging markets. Our focus verticals are healthcare, edu-tech, internet —including ecommerce—and clean-tech. By executing transactions at an earlier stage than IFC’s more traditional business, we enhance the organization's strong commitment to innovation, supporting local businesses, and accelerating cross-border technology transfers.

With one of the largest footprints in emerging markets, we offer local knowledge, connections to a global network of other clients and portfolios, as well as an understanding of regulations and local domains. We aim to be a long-term partner to the ventures we support—with growth and expansion capital, sector knowledge, and our global expertise and presence.
