Madagascar based Venture

Deals D000076
Description Plantinum Madagascar is a social impact business incubated by GEXSI that developed a business model that positively influences the development of the bufferzone around National Park Ankarafantsika with its unique biodiversity. The company's agro-forestry activities enable smallholder farmers to improve their livelihoods, while a tropical hardwood plantation will extent the park's forestry eco-system into the buffer zone while helping to stabilize the region's watershed which is at risk. Following a five year test-and-trial period the company now teamed up with an experienced Timber Investment Management Organization to start its core business activties. The company's unique selling point is, among others, a well balanced land use regime that ensures a high-level of local ownership while securing the investor's interests at the same time.
