A new name and a new orange signal Renew Capital’s expansion across Africa
DENVER, September 29, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–More than a decade after launching an innovative public-private finance model for growing small and medium businesses in Africa, the impact investment firm RENEW LLC has relaunched under a new brand, Renew Capital.
The firm’s name change signifies a major push forward in Renew Capital’s ambition to expand their investment work to half of Africa’s 54 countries by 2027. The new brand’s bolder color palette and the shift of the Renew Capital arrow from left to right in the brand mark also symbolizes the forward momentum of the firm’s pioneering investment work on the continent.
"The refreshed visual identity better communicates the boldness of our mission, our forward trajectory and the vision we are forging for a prosperous Africa," said Managing Partner Laura Davis.
The Renew Capital name change also extends to the Renew Capital Angels, the firm's growing impact investor network. Formerly called the Impact Angel Network, the refreshed name more clearly denotes the relationship between the investment firm and the global network of for-purpose investors which founder and CEO Matthew Davis plans to grow to a membership of more than 1,000 individuals and families by 2027.
"With blended finance commitments in place to fund Renew Capital for the next seven years, the timing is right for Renew Capital to make a big push forward," Matthew Davis said.
"We strongly believe Africa’s private sector is the future of the continent, and we are more committed to our mission to grow companies, build nations and leave a legacy than ever," Laura Davis said. "Our refreshed Renew Capital brand is our reflection of this commitment and our firm’s values of bringing integrity, intelligence, beauty and grit to this important and timely work."

If you really want to rev up your retirement savings and minimize income taxes, the best thing to be is a late-career professional in private practice. When you’re making a lot of money and are close to retirement age, you have savings options that go way beyond the levels of the typical workplace 401(k) plan. As long as you can handle a little extra paperwork and some fees, you can set up a solo retirement plan and enjoy higher limits than most employees.
FCF is what's left over from net income after working capital requirements and capital expenditures have been taken out. It's the flow of cash in a year that can be used to make returns to investors (through dividends and share buybacks), fund acquisitions, or, as in Boeing's case, pay down debt. FCF should be a crucial focus for Boeing investors because it's gone south in recent years.
