LeapFrog Investments has appointed Souleymane Ba as Co-Head of Climate Strategy.

Ba joins from Just Climate where he served as Partner and member of the Executive Committee and Investment Committee. LeapFrog has also announced the appointment of senior advisors to its climate team. Gina Domanig has been appointed as an independent member of the Investment Committee to the Climate Strategy, while Steve Howard, Mike Berners-Lee and Damilola Ogunbiyi, are appointed to the Climate Advisory Board.

Souleymane Ba said, “I am convinced the path to robust, low-carbon growth for the four billion consumers in Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia is through breakthrough business models that both protect the planet and enable greater prosperity. I am thrilled to join LeapFrog, and to work with Nakul to help scale the innovative technologies and business models that can deliver our mission in global growth markets.”

LeapFrog’s impressive track record of growing businesses that deliver real impact, and unrivalled understanding of the needs of emerging consumers, positions it uniquely to help support and deliver a green transition that benefits low-income communities. I am excited to be part of the next stage of LeapFrog’s profit with purpose journey.”
