What to expect as an investment partner

We offer you a diligently vetted pipeline of exciting and investment ready East African impact startups. Through our well-crafted selection process, acceleration programme and embedded mentors and experts we provide a validation equivalent to an introductory due diligence.

Whereas there may be many African entrepreneurs the number of great startups are significantly less – and the best ones are typically not making headlines in the newspaper or on social media. It takes continuous infield work and a focused network to spot the winners.

Let's talk

How can we work together? How can we jointly develop more successful African startups which
create jobs and economic progress - while delivering impactful and financial returns to investors?
