Close collaboration with our partners is crucial for the success of our work.
All investors contributing to CEPI’s funding pool are invited to join our Investors Council. The council nominates Investor representatives to the Board and has some rights including approval any single investments over $100 m.
Each investor appoints one person to represent them on the Investors Council, serving as members for the duration of their pledged commitment.
The Investors Council receives regular updates from the CEPI team, shares information with CEPI and each other, provides guidance and oversight of CEPI activities, and engages in resource mobilisation efforts.
Four members of the CEPI Investors Council serve on the CEPI Board.
