Who We Are

We are growth investors who seek to partner with visionary entrepreneurs and management teams to build differentiated middle-market businesses in North Africa and beyond. As long-term patient capital we are focused on sustainable job creation and opening the consumption choices of low to middle income consumers to more inclusive growth and higher quality products and services. Over the last decade we have consistently delivered outsized returns driven by the growth and success of our partner companies, not by leverage or financial engineering. We are investing in the future of North Africa, identifying and supporting the sectors we believe will shape the future and create the jobs of tomorrow.
