Zephyr Acorn provides equity financing and business support to innovative early-stage companies in East Africa.
Fund Overview & Strategy
We are typically a company’s first institutional capital and seek to invest across the following themes: (i) digitization of traditional business models, (ii) use of technology to enhance productivity and deliver cost-effective products and services, (iii) innovation in the distribution or delivery of products and services, and (iv) inclusion of new customer segments with new products and services.
We seek to partner with entrepreneurs who are passionate about a big idea, committed, adaptable, and coachable with strong execution skills and high integrity.
Post-investment, we actively support portfolio companies in areas such as finance, strategy, new market entry, and governance to help build the foundation for future growth.
