The PGM Investment Programme will provide early stage capital to companies that can demonstrate the commercial viability of their products and/or growth capital for the further expansion of their businesses. The programme aims to facilitate additional benefits in the form of reliability of PGM supply and long term pricing benefits as well as exploring the broad Anglo American industrial complex for commercial opportunities.
Anglo American Platinum Limited seeks to partner with innovators in early stage commercialisation or growth across geographies, and to invest directly in opportunities that are mutually beneficial. Example industries and target innovations include, but are not limited to water treatment, electronics, recycling, electrochemical systems (e.g. fuel cells, flow batteries, electrolysers etc.) and medical devices.
The companies will be required to contribute leadership and management (to build and lead a motivated management team), operational skills (technical, manufacturing, marketing and distribution, etc.) and a well thought out business plan.
