FOUNDERS HOME
"As capital becomes a commodity with more early-stage investors flocking to Africa, what will make us stand out will be our networks, relationships, and reputations."

What we look for


Do you have a compelling team?

When investing locally, we are very interested in the reputation of your team. Your founders should be globally minded, passionate about the problems you are solving, and interested in developing long-term partnerships.

Are you looking for more than money?

We want to leverage our internal and external networks, as well as our own experience to help you grow into an established business.

Are you stubborn on vision but flexible on the details?

We expect founders to know that their original idea can change over time and that they might need to pivot to another market as the idea develops.

Are you going after a large market?

When developing your idea, make sure you are aware of the potential of your market. Position your idea in a market in which you can scale and grow.

If you answered yes to all the above, we would like to talk to you!.
