Zambia’s investment profile has continued to grow, driven by its rich natural resources, ongoing infrastructure development, and intrepid entrepreneurs, making it an appealing destination for investors seeking diverse opportunities in Southern Africa.

The Zambia Impact Investment Summit is designed to drive this momentum; highlighting Zambia’s immense potential and a wide array of investment opportunities. By fostering dialogue  and collaboration among businesses, investors, development agencies, policy makers, and ecosystem enablers, the Summit serves as a platform for targeted discussion, networking, impactful pitches, and meaningful introductions. Our goal is to shape the trajectory of Zambia’s impact investment ecosystem, paving the way for capital infusion that can effectively address the country’s economical, social, and environmental challenges.




The ZIIS would not be possible without support from our partners and sponsors:



Informed panels

Every year we research which topics are most important to businesses, investors, and other investment ecosystem players. These topics are structured to catalyse discussion and participation. ZIIS panels feature leaders in industry, regulation, investment, services provision, and innovation in Zambia.

High value roundtables

Round table discussions offer a great forum for sharing ideas, discussion, and networking, giving attendees the opportunity to share with, and learn from, a group of peers. ZIIS round tables are moderated by carefully selected ecosystem enablers who keep conversation flowing and facilitate honest discussion.


Masterclasses provide a deep dive on hot business topics, to which experts give practical advice.

SME showcasing

ZIIS is a dynamic event: we want all players to be networking, engaging, sharing and learning. Throughout the conference, exciting investment-ready businesses in our pipeline are showcased through quickfire pitches, keeping the energy high, and the focus on making deals.

Networking breakouts

The ZIIS is all about building networks and getting deals done, and we know how critical the personal element of deal-discussion and relationship building is, so we incorporate timely networking breakout and discussion segments throughout the conference.
