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.
