Knife Capital manages HBD Venture Capital’s South African portfolio of investments.

HBD VC is a South African venture capital fund founded by Michael Shuttleworth in 2000. HBD (an acronym for ‘Here Be Dragons’ – a term used in ancient times to mark unchartered territories on maps) offered growth capital to a range of early stage businesses. The fund is now fully invested and its current focus is on growing its investments to achieve successful exits.
