About us

We believe there is a huge gap in the horn of Africa in terms of funding and investments in SMEs and Startups. The region has big potential in every sector from tech, energy, agriculture, service industry and education. With its young population of close to a 1/2 Billion, growing economy and diaspora that is coming back to invest and work in their home countries, it is ripe for investments and creating an ecosystem that supports awesome, cool, and impactful businesses.

We believe that, by providing much-needed capital and building bridges between venture capital firms, young innovative companies and established businesses, we can achieve both strong investment returns and economic growth
