Team

Our team’s deep knowledge of the West African market, extensive investment experience, capability to add value to portfolio companies, and a strong local network positions it well to identify and execute on attractive investment opportunities in the region. With our on-the-ground presence, and access to investment capital we are well positioned to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns while contributing to the socio-economic development of West Africa.

We are based in Dakar and Abidjan, the two regional economic capitals. We don’t believe that portfolio companies in frontier markets, particularly in the SME space, can be managed remotely. We are very hands-on and are hoping to build strong local teams. We only consider deals where we can apply our experience, knowledge of best business practices, and network to help SMEs grow and become regional champions or to achieve international success, making them attractive secondary or trade targets, while delivering maximum social and economic impact.
