Africa has long been a continent marked by resilience and resourcefulness. Our founders, deeply connected to the heart of Africa, understood that within this tapestry of diverse cultures, languages, and landscapes lay the seeds of innovation and progress.

Innovation as a Catalyst

Strong local capital forms the backbone of our mission. We believe that solutions born on African soil have the potential to not only address the challenges faced here but to make a global impact. It's about nurturing talent, fostering entrepreneurship, and creating a self-sustaining ecosystem.

We spent 2020 creating and piloting some of the vehicles we shall be using to channel capital (venture/early stage and credit). The design of these vehicles reflects the challenges associated with financial intermediation and the need to grow a local financial ecosystem on the African continent that draws on local capital (retail, communal and institutional), working with Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) and public investment in a blended approach. We believe that inevitably as African economies become more stable and mature, there will be more capital to deploy although this must be done wisely and effectively to achieve the most impact per unit of capital. This can be achieved through appropriate selection of opportunities, structuring the right vehicles to channel this capital and leveraging technology to enable this at scale.
