Sanaga Ventures actively invests in and supports new and emerging ventures across the African continent. We offer finance and coaching to assist in building the capacity of our partners to the stage where they can achieve financial sustainability and critical mass in their operations.
We select high-potential entrepreneurs and provide them with not only seed finance, but a package that includes the knowledge, network and non-financial resources to give them their best chance at success. Our end goal is to create an attractive opportunity for the investment community.
We draw the inspiration for our identity from the Sanaga river, located in central Cameroon. Its most important headwaters — the Agoua and the Djérem — meet to form the Sanaga northwest of Bertoua. The river then flows southwest past Nanga-Eboko and Edéa, roughly bisecting Cameroon’s Atlantic coastline south of Douala.
The Sanaga river is a source of energy and vitality. Its waters support life, transportation and provides economic opportunity to the people living along its banks. In the context of investing in Africa, for us it represents a flow of ideas, capital and new possibilities.
