About Us

Sinergi Burkina is an investment fund that provides funding and support for Burkinabe small and medium companies with financing needs between 20 and 200 million FCFA, often slowed down in their development by difficult access to long-term financing and skills.

Who are we ?

Sinergi Burkina is a private company under Burkinabe law created in 2016 by entrepreneurs and private actors including Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P), a pioneering group in impact investment, entirely dedicated to the financing and support of start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Sub-Saharan Africa.

NETWORK

Sinergi Burkina is part of a pan-african network of investment companies supported by I&P: Comoé Capital in Côte d’Ivoire, Sinergi in Niger, Teranga Capital in Senegal and Miarakap in Madagascar. This network builds common skills and initiatives to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem between countries.

The companies supported by Sinergi Burkina have access to an Burkinabe, panafrican and international network of shareholders and entrepreneurs, including the African Club of Entrepreneurs, a pan-african association that offers high value services to entrepreneurs.

 

Our Impact Objectives

We are persuaded that companies have an essential social role in the real economy.

In addition to the extra-financial activities, Sinergi Burkina is a committed player in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria.

One of our objectives is also to promote the social and environmental responsibility of the company and build with the entrepreneur an action plan to boost the impacts on each of its stakeholders (employees, customers, local communities, suppliers…), referring to the framework established by the United Nations with the Sustainable Development Goals.
