Africa50 focuses on medium to large scale infrastructure projects that have a significant development impact while offering an appropriate return to investors. It not only invests in fully developed projects, but also accelerates the provision of infrastructure by supporting project development in its early stages. By bringing project development and financing together in one institution, Africa50 can provide support at every stage of the project cycle.

The primary objective of Africa50 Project Development is to increase the number of investment-ready, "bankable" infrastructure projects. In addition to providing financing at earlier stages of projects, Africa50’s staff actively contributes to project development, engaging with stakeholders along the deal cycle, with a particular focus on mobilizing political support.
