AHL Venture Partners

Investing in a better Africa

We invest in innovative, scalable businesses that contribute to solving pressing social and environmental challenges across Africa. AHL Venture Partners believes in the power of responsible profit to drive African development forward.

AHL Venture Partners puts entrepreneurs first. We make decisions quickly, invest with the intention to participate in subsequent funding rounds, provide ongoing business support and have accessible teams based in West, East and Southern Africa with a deep understanding of the situation on the ground.

We make minority equity, quasi-equity and debt investments in companies led by world-class teams taking innovative approaches to solving big problems in our sectors of focus. We prefer business models where increased profits creates increased impact, and vice versa.

AHL Venture Partners invests through two separate vehicles. Since 2007, we’ve been making catalytic early-stage investments through the AHLCF, one of the longest standing and largest impact investment funds in Africa. More recently, we’ve launched the AHL Growth Fund, providing investors an opportunity to participate alongside the AHLCF in exciting growth-stage impact investing opportunities in East and Southern Africa.
