About Us

Who We Are

Supivaa is a boutique consulting firm specializing in research, advisory, and business development services. Our mission is to foster gender equality across three pivotal sectors: agriculture, renewable energy, and healthcare.

The name “Supivaa” embodies our commitment to “SUPporting the dIVAas in Africa.” At our core, we align with Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG 5) principles, driving every aspect of our work. We forge strategic partnerships that facilitate resource distribution and propel societal change, ensuring that no one is left behind.

What We Do

We guide companies at every stage of their development journey, whether they’re taking their first steps, gearing up for expansion or preparing for an exit. Our extensive network of global experts empowers businesses to become both “investment ready” and “investor prepared”. We provide invaluable assistance in market positioning, capital raising, public/stakeholder relations, due diligence, deal structuring, negotiations, and post-investment operational support.

We are also champions of impact measurement, management, learning, and amplification, helping business leaders effectively communicate their journey towards gender transformation.

Our Expertise

Supivaa offers a diverse range of services, including research, advisory, business development, and capital raising/fundraising. Our expertise extends to:

  • Business Intelligence: Comprehensive market feasibility studies (i.e. country landscapes, sector profiles and company-level financial models) that drive informed decision-making.
  • Business Development: Oversight over the entire investment lifecycle (i.e. capital raising, grant writing, proposal development, investor relations, and deal negotiations).
  • Impact Measurement and Learning: Clear and actionable impact strategies and implementation guides (i.e. impact frameworks, theory of change diagrams, and producing evaluation and learning reports).

Our Vision

Our vision is to create Gender Champions globally by helping ventures to optimize their growth potential of ventures and to assist funders in investing in high-impact opportunities. We empower ventures to be both “investment ready” and “investor prepared,” unlocking their full potential.

Our Global Reach

Supivaa’s global footprint is anchored by a core team in Sub-Saharan Africa and a network of global consultants in the UK, Europe, Canada, US and Asia. We collaborate with impact and commercial investors seeking transformative opportunities in emerging markets.

Our Diverse Team

Our Commitment

As an organization founded and directed by women, Supivaa understands the multifaceted barriers faced by women entrepreneurs. We prioritize building trust and mutually supportive relationships, putting “people first.” Our strong connections with local and global ecosystem players, including government agencies, innovation hubs, diaspora networks, and philanthropic partners, promote best impact practices, policy reform, and resource redistribution for systemic change.
