About the Client
The Client is a biogas company based in Tunisia that specializes in converting animal waste into electricity and fertilizers. Operating at the intersection of waste management and renewable energy, the Client was looking to raise capital to scale its production and sales operations within the country.
CrossBoundary Advisory assisted a biogas company in raising outside capital to fuel its expansion plans in Tunisia. The engagement involved the creation of high-quality investor materials, comprehensive support during the investor outreach process, and assistance through the due diligence stages. Additionally, the Client sought CrossBoundary Advisory’s expert advice during the round closing, specifically focusing on the negotiation of investment terms and commercial analysis. This engagement was executed through USAID’s INVEST mechanism.
CrossBoundary Advisory employed a thorough and multi-faceted approach to address the Client’s capital-raising needs effectively:
