Entrepreneurship funds

Our mission

Our mission is to help in fostering the entrepreneurial spirit among young people and unleashing potential for innovation and entrepreneurship within our community. We have established a 10 Million FCFA fund to invest in promising young companies with breakthrough businesses and technologies in the start-up, growth and expansion phases of a company life cycle.

We keep growing and increasing the amount allocated to this fund by means of the investment plans we offer to our investors. Income/profit generated from these investments in the various sectors are paid back to our investors as return on their investments in the form of dividends.

By tackling the problem of funding for SMEs, we shall be indirectly solving the problem of unemployment in Africa which requires innovative thinking and initiatives that support private sector-led growth.

We believe our attitude and experience are complementary. We also believe that true potential is only realised by looking to the future. Our investment philosophy is to focus on building long-lasting, sustainable and valuable companies.

What we look for

We look for credible, passionate, and ambitious teams who are building companies with a compelling value proposition. The proposition needs to be based on unique and protectable technology that addresses a very important problem in a large market. They also need to have a clear, milestone-driven plan for building value.

Access to finance, credit, and banking services are key barriers for smallholder farmers looking to increase their production. Commercial banks or lending institutions rarely approve loans to smallholders, viewing them as high risk borrowers. If approved, farmers face prohibitive collateral requirements, high interest rates, and unfamiliarity with formal banking practices, making on-time payments a challenge and thus repeating the cycle of mistrust between the two groups.

We are introducing Agro Funds to help solve this problem and bridge the gap between farmers and investors. Agro Funds have a duration of atleast 5 years and an investment amount of 5,000,000 FCFA.
