Energy Access Ventures

We bring more than just capital.


We will help grow a portfolio company’s strategy and team. We will help founders raise further funding and develop a long-range exit plan. We have an extensive network in the energy access market which we open up to our companies as they seek customers and partners. Crucially, all our companies can expect significant assistance on-the-ground in Africa. We manage substantial pro-bono assistance programs generously provided by our investors over and above their investment capital. All these programs are available to our portfolio companies. Uniquely, Schneider Electric makes available 1,000 man-days a year of its support to our portfolio companies which can take the form of business development advice, technical assistance, business process training and more.
