Why Founders Work with Us
We are operators that have funded, founded and scaled consumer brands across Africa's retail, FMCG, food, media & entertainment industries. This means we share similar experiences to founders. 

Through our deep global networks, we support our start-up CEOs, in Africa and the diaspora, with valuable connections and constant strategic operational guidance  as they build the necessary structures to scale across Africa and globally.

We invest with a gender lens, giving more opportunities for female founders and diverse teams to get funded.
