Inspiring public sector transformation
We work with governments, academic institutions and other partners to improve governance and transform public sector performance.

Africa’s poor record of public sector governance is a factor that currently prevents the continent from achieving its true potential.

Our pioneering initiative brings proven private sector innovation, leadership and funding in a private-public partnership to attract, inspire and support future leaders of the public sector. With our continuing support, these high-calibre individuals will drive best practice standards of governance across Africa, ensuring sustainable economic growth and social justice.

Who we are

Our founder and principals are leading figures from business, government and academia. Together, we share a strong vision for the future of African governance, and the potential of our continent and its people.
