    Clean Cooking Masterclass – The Fundraising Journey

    Last month, the “Clean Cooking Masterclass” took place virtually, which was organised by EnDev and GET.invest, in partnership with the Clean Cooking Alliance. The aim of this Masterclass was to focus on the ‘Fundraising Journey’, providing insights into the mindset of investors and the process of fund raising from pitching to closing a deal. In total, 10 competitively selected clean cooking companies from Ethiopia, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Uganda – four of which are led by women – participated. The Class was a success in facilitating linkages amongst participants and introducing stories of success and lessons learned.
