Société d’Investissement et de Gestion d’Initiatives au Niger (Sinergi) is a private company under Niger law created in 2006 by entrepreneurs and private actors including Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P), a pioneering group in impact investment, entirely dedicated to the financing and support of start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Sinergi works with Nigerien entrepreneurs and local suppliers to develop a dynamic community of SMEs in Niger. Working with the entrepreneur, we build a strategy to boost the company’s development.
Our approach is organized around the entrepreneur with whom we aim to build a long-term relationship based on trust.
We are persuaded that companies have an essential social role in the real economy.
In addition to the extra-financial activities, Sinergi is a committed player in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria.
One of our objectives is also to promote the social and environmental responsibility of the company and build with the entrepreneur an action plan to boost the impacts on each of its stakeholders (employees, customers, local communities, suppliers…), referring to the framework established by the United Nations with the Sustainable Development Goals.
Sinergi is financed by Nigerien and international shareholders such as private actors (Investisseurs & Partenaires, Véolia, Compagnie d’Assurances et de réassurances au Niger, Solidarité Internationale pour le Développement et l’Investissement, Société d’Exploitation des Eaux du Niger, Gamma Informatique, Orano) and banking institutions (Bank of Africa).
We also work with governmental institutions such as the European Union.
