Women in African Investments
Created in November 2017, Women in African Investments (WAI) is an influential collective of women investment professionals focused on investing in Africa. They support women fund managers through networking, knowledge-sharing and awareness-building to catalyse gender-equitable economic growth in Africa.
Members include senior executives at DFIs, PE/VC funds, Philanthropic funds, FinTech intermediaries, family offices and market development organisations. The WAI Group makes women fund managers visible, holds the industry accountable and combats inequalities in access to capital.
In 2022, Small Foundation provided financial support for a new WAI Impact Report.
