Brickstone InfraLAB is an infrastructure accelerator programme that is focused on the large scale greenfield startup projects in infrastructure, real estate and energy.
Brickstone Africa InfraLAB have crafted a “catalyst” venture fund model and accelerator program that enables founders to speed up the infrastructure development cycle, de-risk their project much further to put their projects in a better position to raise venture funding, and implement practices that allow them to scale their processes while managing the other responsibilities they have as a founder of a Large Scale Project.
As Development Managers we work with each sponsor/partner company from the pre-investment strategic, commercial and operational due diligence stages right until the project achieves bankability with the right investor/sponsor base (“significant milestone”) to achieve financial close.
Brickstone InfraLAB’s professionals support the sponsor company in meeting the Conditions Precedent to financial close with the help of our Interim Management Team through our 180-Day Infrastructure Implementation Plans. To help deploy these plans—as well as conduct key initiatives and regular project reviews—Brickstone InfraLAB has created a set of tools and techniques that can be implemented across sponsor companies involved in Infrastructure projects
