What we look for?
We look for the following three characteristic in entrepreneurs and business managers:
The desire to build a purposeful business around an almost obsessive passion;
The determination to create something bigger than oneself;
The genuine willingness and proven ability to partner and take advice.
Some of the investment themes we currently pursue include the following:
Women led businesses
Women are heavily under-represented in the global entrepreneurial, founders and technology scene. We see this current imbalance as a tremendous opportunity. Furthermore, we believe women executives and founders bring to the table a unique insider perspective on more than 50% of global consumer spending which is currently often served ineffectively;
Emerging and Sub Saharan Markets
The next billion consumers will come from Africa and the continent offers a huge market for unique innovation that applies to a mobile connected, internet savvy emerging middle class.
