Project Overview and Role: CATALYZE is a $250 million 5 to 8-year program designed to catalyze $2 billion in private capital especially to underfinanced social sectors (such as education) and higher risk countries (especially low-income and post-conflict countries) around the globe complemented by a cross-cutting inclusion of gender-lens investing. CATALYZE will provide services to many missions and bureaus that ‘buy in’ to tap the CATALYZE investment and pay-for-results project management expertise. Our aim is for investors to explore and find commercially viable opportunities and approaches to creating jobs developing sustainable social services tightening and rationalizing supply chains and advancing inclusive growth.

CATALYZE: Market Systems for Growth (MS4G) will drive private enterprise expansion to catalyze Ethiopia’s future economic growth and prosperity. MS4G intends to foster enterprise-driven growth especially among private enterprises that have high growth potential and the capacity to catalyze job creation throughout market systems. MS4G will address systemic challenges including building business development services capacity creating a more conducive business environment building the financial sector infrastructure and capability within private finance providers and expanding the digital economy. MS4G will catalyze private sector growth by improving access to finance and facilitating transactions through targeted interventions across market systems (demand supply and enabling environment). Expanded access to finance will also drive change across the market system by increasing business revenue and necessitating job creation. The program has an estimated life of project funding of $55-$70 million and is expected to operate for five years.

While focus sectors will be finalized in collaboration with USAID during the inception phase it is anticipated that they could include agribusiness light manufacturing and telecommunications & ICT (including fintech).
