Oasis Capital Ghana Limited was established in February 2009 under the laws of the Republic of Ghana as a growth and venture capital fund manager. We seek to provide risk capital in the form of equity, quasi-equity and profit-sharing facilities to entrepreneurial businesses in Africa. We also offer a business development service to investee companies as part of our value proposition. By combining finance and BDS, Oasis is able to leverage its analytical approach to better mitigate risk, improve the business models of our clients and realize sustainable returns for our stakeholders.We are currently managing the Ebankese Venture Fund with a co-investment arrangement with SOVEC I BV of the Netherlands. SOVEC co-invests with funds managed by Oasis Capital on a case by case basis. The Ebankese Venture Fund, which closed in March 2012, is currently more than 50% invested.

OUR VISION

The vision of Oasis Capital is to become the preferred growth capital manager for investors and small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa. The preference for Oasis will be attributable to the superior economic & social returns that we will provide our stakeholders in each of our target sectors.The average African, with newfound discretionary income, will require various goods & services over the next few decades—from education and real estate, to consumer goods and healthcare. Companies that are ready to meet these needs sustainably are our target, and we support them by providing risk capital and measurable value-addition.

Our investment approach is to identify SMEs that fit our investment criteria and build their capacity to achieve operational critical mass.We specifically seek to:

  • Invest into entrepreneurs with experience and a tested business strategy that will yield sustainable growth and profitability;
  • Enhance systems, processes and procedures of our investee companies in order to achieve operational efficiency
  • Recruit management resources to build capacity of the businesses, and develop strategic management incentives that align shareholder interests with management
  • Ensure transparency via board representations and business development services (BDS)
  • Use multiple instruments (equity, preference shares, convertible debts with ratchets etc), for liquidity, risk management and upside participation
