Asoba — investments in urban renewal, defi, and solar energy

Climate change is forcing new models of growth in emerging markets, with new technology paradigms

We provide 21st century infrastructure for resilient emerging market growth

Web3 and Revolutionizing Clean Energy Financing

The desperate need for additional power capacity, combined with the lack of traditional capital, calls for creative ways to rapidly finance energy projects.

See how Asoba DeFi is leveraging NFTs to rapidly fundraise for solar projects across southern Africa.

Redistributing the Urban Core

Decentralization will be the driver of 21st century economic growth.  Investing in the creation of mixed use commercial + residential zones will help communities – especially those at the fringe of urban cores – realize their growth potential.

How Private Investment Can Save Africa From Climate Change

Aging infrastructure struggling with lack of investment plagues governments across Africa. We take a look at why individual governments are largely failing to step up, how current efforts are largely driven by transnational bodies dependent on western funding, and why private investment is the missing link for building climate resilient infrastructure.

Areas of Impact

Urban Renewal

As demographics shift and industries come and go, the economic needs of a city change.  Whether it’s a suburb looking to upzone to address housing shortage, rapidly growing cities looking to mitigate crippling traffic gridlock, or local governments looking to attract and incubate high growth industries, we like to invest in projects that redevelop land to its highest and best use.

Decentralized Finance

Across most emerging markets, the lack of foreign direct investment has meant a dependence on high transaction cost remittances as a primary source of capitalization for small business. DeFi offers transformational change in the ease and speed with which communities can access capital from a global pool of investors without traditional banking bottlenecks or local currency risk.

Solar Energy Production

Climate change is challenging local governments to build adaptive capabilities into city infrastructure to maintain high levels of service for citizens. We invest in the production and distribution of solar energy – as failover micro grids as well as primary power supply – as a key platform for supporting post-Covid urban revitalization.

We created Asoba on the principle that climate change will force emerging markets to make radical evolution towards decentralized capital and energy markets in order to grow in the 21st century. Which means there is incredible investment upside in creating the tools to support that transformation.
