Venture Capital

People often think that Venture Capital is all about money, but in fact, it is mostly about people impacting communities. This is what inspires the GGF AFRICA venture capital fund, which we describe to our partners as a “Sustainable Impact Fund” offering Startups and SMMEs the opportunity to showcase bankable business cases to investors; who in turn provide access to appropriately structured capital. 

The Fund provides  financial instruments include grant funding, equity, quasi-equity, and debt. We are on a mission to promote impact investing in Africa, investment not only motivated by profit but by our “Big Dream” of protecting nature and biodiversity, while improving people’s livelihoods. The venture capital fund is skewed towards scalable early-stage opportunities with demonstrable conservation and community development impact. We walk the journey with our clients from seed, to scale, to explosive growth.
