Our Thesis

From Here ventures is an early stage venture fund deploying capital and a suite of support capabilities to exceptional entrepreneurs building transformative companies in Africa

 

As the volume of venture capital increases on the continent, majority of which is offshore, the best African entrepreneurs will prioritize investors with deep, intrinsic understanding of how things work in Africa, local networks, along with tangible value add capabilities on their platform

 

The inflation of Venture Capital in Africa will accrue proprietary deal flow advantages to funds that can demonstrate beyond money capabilities attractive to the most sophisticated African entrepreneurs
