According to Axial, investments firms spend between USD 450,000 and USD 1 million a year to source deal with various degrees of success. Similarly, the Renewables in Africa (RiA) study found that funders and developers will disburse around USD 190,000 every 6 months to secure projects. With a limited amount of strong deals in emerging markets and especially Africa, It is not surprising to identify firms that spend all this amount for a mere project.
The process is clearly inefficient and can be substantially improved. Smart companies are changing their approach. What about you?
