Mobilising capital for a new African investment paradigm
Orango Investment Corporation is a unique advisory and investment platform designed to bring the African private sector to the centre of Africa’s investment agenda by delivering sustainability in action, large transformational deals and capital market development.
As a trusted partner to private enterprise and sovereigns, Orango aims to bridge Africa’s funding gap by mobilising the potential of its key actors and solving its most pressing environmental challenges.
Africa’s GDP is expected to grow by 40% in next 10 years, generating sizeable opportunities across many sectors including renewables, agribusiness, infrastructure and the housing market. Orango is passionate about playing a leading role in the sustainability agenda of Africa, by taking authentic action in investment via ESG principles and in adherence to the SDGs.
Orango’s strong network and support from public and private enterprises allows it to singularly source the large deals and appropriate deal pipeline required by investors – many pre-approved – and designed to deliver strategic transformational and sustainable impact, as well as address the gap in the private investment market in Africa.
Orango is uniquely differentiated by its ability to advise, structure and deliver these transformational deals across a range of sectors, as well as bringing together the private sector and its capital and helping to monetise public sector assets, by sharing its know-how and experience to strengthen Africa’s capital market.
The logo in our brand identity is inspired by the popular West African Adinkra symbol ‘Funtunfunefu Denkyemfunefu’, also known as the ‘Siamese Crocodiles’. The two crocodiles share one stomach yet they fight over food, whereas Orango offers one ‘shared stomach’ at the centre, symbolising shared prosperity and co-operation for sustainable development in Africa and beyond.
Orango therefore epitomises Africa’s co-existence in the world:
- Mobilising global capital investments for transformative growth of private and public assets
- Mutually providing for and sustaining Africa and the world, with the approach of ‘one unified stomach’
- Working to unlock Africa’s potential and opportunity as the world’s largest growth population, with the most farming land, natural resources, working youth, and leapfrogging digital/mobile revolution
- Driving exponential growth for wealth creation
- Delivering mutual, global prosperity in a sustainable development model, while at the same time –
- Minimising carbon footprint by preserving the carbon sink of Africa’s forests and marine/mangrove reserves and prioritising new clean hydro/gas and renewable energy capacity.
Orango is named after the national park of the same name, found just off the coast of Guinea Bissau, which was awarded protected status due to its wealth of biodiversity in fauna and flora. It is home to the Bissago people, who live in harmony with nature. Bissago women are the torchbearers of their society and are revered, overseeing the management of crops and criminal justice as the priestesses of the land.
