Local Innovation. Global Elevation.


HAVAÍC is an investment and advisory firm that specialises in early-stage, high-growth African businesses with proven concepts and global prospects, offering investment opportunities to sophisticated investors and international venture capital companies with an interest in Africa. As a complementary offering, HAVAÍC provides corporate advisory and capital raising services to emerging, internationally scalable businesses.

Successful innovations have durability, broad impact, and high returns. Our investment philosophy is driven by identifying new products, processes or programs with disruptive growth potential, that have the power to significantly improve on the status quo, with global relevance.

To optimally support our clients, HAVAÍC is run and operated by partners with extensive local and international experience (raising capital, M&A and strategic analysis), providing personalised and bespoke transactional expertise and strategic advice, optimally supporting the firm’s investments. Our portfolio companies retain their independence and are encouraged to maintain their unique cultures. We are deeply invested in our ventures, ensuring greater commitment and accountability.

OUR VISION is to provide a non-traditional investment offering that delivers annualised returns of at least 30% through participation in early stage (proven product), high growth African businesses with global prospects.

OUR MISSION is to facilitate the success and realisation of the international potential of emerging African businesses through strong advisory relationships and transactional expertise (M&A, capital raising and strategic insight).
