Since its inception in 2012, EquaLife Group has played two distinct roles in the East African region starting as a developer and operator of businesses and now evolving into EquaLife Capital, Africa’s first venture debt fund, and EquaLife Advisory Services, hands-on strategic and financial management support to start-ups and SMEs throughout the region.
While we see local markets as an extension of a global business environment, we strive to support companies in developing businesses that can ‘acclimate’ to the distinct cultural and economic realities present in each market. As successful operators in the region, we firmly believe in providing an active management presence in the regions where we invest in and develop opportunities. We ensure that our work creates jobs, training, and career development for local employees, who we see as the driving force behind companies’ growth potential.
