One out of three people globally
rely on polluting cooking fuels

– a leading source of carbon emissions that kill four million
people each year. Spark+ aims to address this global crisis.

Spark+ Africa Fund is a $70 million impact investment fund financing companies that offer next-generation, distributed cooking energy solutions to the mass market in sub-Saharan Africa.

Client Stroy

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Fund

Spark+ was launched to catalyze investment in one of the world’s most underappreciated energy challenges, and one with significant social and environmental implications in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: the dirty and unsustainable use of wood, charcoal, and kerosene for cooking.

It is a true “triple bottom line” impact investment fund, financing profitable and scalable companies that are serving a massive total addressable market for cooking energy solutions and enabling millions of African families to stay safe and healthy, and save time and money.

Companies in which Spark+ invests can produce a range of other social and environmental benefits including protecting forests, enabling greater gender equality, creating industrial and economic development, and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

The fund provides debt and mezzanine capital to leading companies throughout the value chains of cooking fuels including liquified petroleum gas (LPG), biofuels such as ethanol and pellets, electric appliances, and fuel-efficient biomass stoves.

Spark+ is the first fund of Luxembourg-based Spark+ General Partner Sàrl, a joint venture between the fund’s exclusive advisor Enabling Qapital (EQ) and Netherlands-based foundation Stichting Modern Cooking (SMC).
