ICRD Group Holdings at glance
Since 2008, ICRD Group Holdings has been creating economic, social and ecological value through market-based solutions that build and scale innovative businesses for social change. Our founder envisioned a hybrid development institution that delivers economic as well as social and ecological outcomes in new and synergistic ways. We are a leading triple bottom line Pan-African business group with interests in media, professional services, clean technologies, natural resources and diversified ecosystems solutions.
In the absence of long-term concessional investors, ICRD Group Holdings was established by Lucky Litelu, founder and executive chairman, to serve as a long-term revenue stream to finance the growth and expansion of ICRD Group of companies into the Sub-Saharan Africa region. This was done in the hope that our work will be counted among the many small good acts that, when replicated and compounded with others, will add up towards the creation of a more inclusive macroeconomic development paradigm.
We are a dynamic engine for sustainable economic, social and ecological transformation.
