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.

The group en­com­passes a clus­ter of busi­nesses that de­liver in­te­grated ser­vices to in­di­vid­u­als, or­ga­ni­sa­tions and com­mu­ni­ties work­ing in de­vel­op­ing mar­kets.

We part­ner with clients in all sec­tors and re­gions to iden­tify their high­est-value op­por­tu­ni­ties; ad­dress their most crit­i­cal chal­lenges and trans­form their or­gan­i­sa­tions. Fur­ther­more, we build knowl­edge through re­search fo­cused on scal­able and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment so­lu­tions. Our ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of so­cio-eco­nomic and eco­log­i­cal fac­tors in each re­gion and sec­tor we op­er­ate gives us a com­pet­i­tive edge.

Our mix of re­fined mar­ket­-based strat­e­gies, depth of op­er­a­tion­al ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive net­work of ex­perts and thought­ful part­ner­ships u­nique­ly po­si­tions us to as­sist cli­ents look­ing to a­dopt new prof­its and sus­tain­abil­ity mo­dels. Our cus­tom­ized ap­proach aims to give cli­ents sus­tain­a­ble com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage, de­vel­op more ca­pa­ble or­gan­i­za­tions and se­cure last­ing re­sults.
