VENTURE CAPITAL

Our Purpose

People think that a Venture Capital fund is all about money but for us it is about people. Our venture capital fund called “Sustainable Impact Fund” offers a different approach that responds to real needs having an ultimate goal of achieving transformational impact for the investor, entrepreneur and communities at large. We are on a mission to promote impact investing in Africa, investment not only motivated by profit but a type of investment that is motivated towards improving and bettering people’s lives. From seed to venture to explosive growth, we work with communities, entrepreneurs and their companies at every stage.

OUR TARGET SECTORS

Health care

Less than half of Africa’s citizens (52%) – some 615 million people – have access to the healthcare they need, the continent’s quality of health services is generally poor as observed during the surge of the COVID 19 Pandemic and family planning needs of half the continent’s women and girls are unmet. Most of the region lacks the infrastructure to deliver health care and faces a severe shortage of trained medical personnel. There is a need to increase access to health care to millions of Africans. If we can get all the critical players – governments, donors, investors, and providers to leverage the private health sector and integrate it effectively with public systems, we can also greatly improve the quality of care.

OUR TARGET SECTORS

Sustainable farming

Agriculture in Africa has a massive social and economic footprint, with 23 percent of sub-Saharan Africa’s GDP coming from agriculture, yet Africa’s full agricultural potential remains untapped. Agriculture in most African countries is still characterised by small-scale, low-technology, rain fed farming. This leaves farmers and food production systems highly vulnerable to climate-related, economic, and other shocks. Realizing Africa’s full agricultural potential will require significant investment.

OUR TARGET SECTORS

Environment Protection (Renewable energy)

The world is on a bid to achieve net zero by 2050. 5 out of 10 people in sub-Saharan Africa live in darkness and in rural areas it is worse with more than 70% of the population living without access to electricity. Most African countries are still dependent on fossil energy which corrupts the environment. Our main aim is to establish sustainable energy solutions which harness the use of solar energy which also assist in environment protection. A critical question yet to be answered is whether Africa will benefit from an equitable share in this global investment and growth or, lacking the economic strength, will continue to fall further behind global standards as outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

BENEFICIARIES

Women

Women are often hindered by less access to basic financial services, with most women reliant on self-finance, because of the inequality in distribution of resources experienced in most African countries. The purpose of this fund is to Increase women’s access to funding and market opportunities.

BENEFICIARIES

Youth

Africa has the largest population of youth around the world and according to the World Bank 60% of them are unemployed. They are the most vulnerable, less privileged, and unattended in society. Many young people have become victims of negativity and unproductiveness. Africa has an impressive pool of youth, talent and creativity, hence the need to invest in youth empowerment programs and accelerate awareness to create the enabling environment for employment.

BENEFICIARIES

Small to Medium Enterprises

According to the World Bank, Small-and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) alone face a huge finance gap and funding is key for their survival as they account for 60% of jobs in Africa.
