Project Finance Fundamentals for Infrapreneurs

Brickstone Dealcamp Series

Project Finance Fundamentals for Infrapreneurs


Brickstone Dealcamps Series were designed for the African Infrapreneur developing projects but lack the knowledge of basic limited recourse financial principles in making the deal happen. 

We define “Infrapreneurs” as Entrepreneurs or business owners who are typically in corporate business but now wants to develop a new project. They also called Project Sponsors in the Limited Resource Finance space. These individuals often point to project finance being the most important skill they cherish. What complicates the matter further is that debt and equity financial decision making in the context of new project ventures is different from materials taught in most finance & accounting courses.

Who Can Participate?

This course is aimed primarily at CEOs with little or limited finance knowledge but who are incubating projects in Energy and Infrastructure space. Brickstone believes it is also important important that CEOs have a solid grasp of basic project finance awareness in order to agree with other project stakeholders and appreciate project finance principles that affect the value of their large scale projects
