The Commonwealth Environmental Investment Platform (CEIP) was launched at a VIP reception at the Royal Commonwealth Society last week as part of Commonwealth Week.
CEIP is designed to assist environmental SMEs in Commonwealth nations share knowledge, increase international awareness and facilitate trade and investment in environmental and sustainable technologies. Regional CEIP hubs will provide a structured investment network to support Commonwealth businesses which are seeking either early stage venture capital investment or the support of business angels. CEIP will also allow companies to share needs and opportunities with partners, trade contacts and interested parties in other Commonwealth countries.
CEIP has been developed in alliance between the Royal Commonwealth Society and Forbury Investment Network, which is operated by Clarkslegal LLP. It has already established regional hubs in Canada, England, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa (Cape Town and Durban) and Wales. Further hubs are planned in the near future.
