We invest in people
Enza looks for bright talent and ambitious teams who are building solutions to problems that have large and growing markets. We focus on engineering excellence and technical talent in the founding team. We look for solutions that can lead to positive social or environmental outcomes for Africa and our growing populations. We invest in people with the ability to execute consistently, learn voraciously, and scale ambitiously.
We invest capital
Enza makes seed investments of up to $1 million in technology companies operating in sub-Saharan Africa. We understand that these amounts can sometimes be challenging to raise but can be essential when building companies to the next stage. Enza is a commercial investor committed to taking a fair, nimble, and entrepreneur-friendly approach with our investments.
We invest more than capital
Enza Capital is a patient investment vehicle launched by John Lazar, Mike Mompi, and David Cohen with the support of a small handful of values-aligned partners. Enza is an active and engaged investor with deep private investing and company operating experience, and with rich networks of experts and talent we plug into our portfolio companies to help drive growth and build value. We emphasize trust and transparency in our approach, and we deploy our capital in line with our values.
