Inaugure Hospitality Group

Africa Consumer Services

Aiming to be the standard for 21st century hospitality in Africa

Our investment

In July 2018 CDC committed $32 million debt investment to Inaugure Hospitality

Expected impact

Building business hospitality with safe and secure areas creates an enabling environment to attract national and regional corporates who can utilise these areas to host employees and meetings. Economic development will also be supported through hotel spend, increasing revenue flows to local suppliers and contributing to local taxes. Our capital will also fund large-scale employment of over 1,000 new jobs through the hotels’ operations and many more in construction.
