About Us

Inspired Evolution established in 2007 as a specialised investment advisory business dedicated to two principle investment themes: clean energy infrastructure-type development and project finance investments; and energy and resource efficiency growth investments – and the value chains that support them. Inspired Evolution’s investment territory comprises South Africa and the sub-Saharan African region with select tier-one priority countries identified through the application of rigorous composite bankability criteria.

Inspired Evolution offers a dedicated, multi-disciplinary, professional investment team with a proven track record targeting superior returns with measured development outcomes. Inspired Evolution has built a credible, proven track record having been involved in over 913MW of renewable energy generation projects with multiple successes under competitive public-private procurement environments. Inspired Evolution is pursuing a pipeline of new clean energy projects across sub-Saharan Africa at various stages of development. The team is constantly adapting and replicating its successful active investment management approach, strengthening its position as a leading advisory platform and equity partner in the region.

Inspired Evolution’s success has been the result of refining a set of core investment principles and competencies which underpin our investment approach. Inspired Evolution’s agility and flexible strategy ensures that investments are tailored to the South African and sub-Saharan African target markets. Through leadership, innovation and sustainability, Inspired Evolution has developed a credible track record of superior investor returns bolstered by the team’s complimentary skills set and experience, offering over 100 years of collective track record in private equity and venture capital investing, technology and sustainability.

Inspired Evolution manages Evolution I and II funds – both dedicated, closed-ended third party investment funds that make equity and equity-related investments primarily for control or significant minority positions.
