Saviu Ventures

Venture Capital in Africa... And not just in Kenya and Nigeria

Saviu Ventures is an Africa-focused investor looking for category-defining tech companies. 

We are an investment holding company with a long-term vision. Do not confuse us with an investment fund: our approach is different. We invest early and stay close to our founders through the turbulent first years. Naturally, we do not want to be forced into selling our shares once things start getting better and want to keep an ability to adapt our exit strategies and timelines to the reality of our portfolio companies.

Stage: We invest from pre-seed up to series A stage.

Sector: Mobility, Fintech & E-commerce/New Retail.

Geography: We target both French & English-speaking Africa.

Investment type: We can do both equity and convertible notes.
