The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the U.S. government’s development finance institution, is launching a pilot program to assemble complementary financial instruments to better catalyze capital for global development. The Aligned Capital Pilot Program will connect forward-thinking global development entrepreneurs with a growing network of socially-minded investors seeking to support private business.
The Aligned Capital Pilot Program is voluntary, accepting applications from both accredited investors and project sponsors interested in additional investment. Contacts between prospective investors and project sponsors will be facilitated by an online platform available to both eligible investors and OPIC project applicants that opt to participate. Projects seeking capital are matched through an automated connection process to investors that identify interests in similar regions and sectors.
