In addition to working on initiative that directly support individual business leaders and young companies, we are committed to building a robust and dynamic ecosystem for African entrepreneurs to grow and thrive.
Entrepreneurs require more than just financial capital to launch and call businesses
Weak coordination within the ecosystem leads to duplicated efforts and unfilled gaps
Our work is centered around 4 pillars that we believe are the cornerstones of a thriving ecosystem and the foundation upon which sustainable businesses are built. It is not unusual to find within a developing economy that there are deficits within an ecosystem. In some cases these functions can be non-existent, capital deprived or disconnected equating to a fragmented and fragile ecosystem. In order to accelerate development, we recommend that you start with these key priority areas.

“Based in Atlanta, Georgia, we felt we needed to rely on a local partner to help reflect our blindspots in communication, strategy of entry, and which markets within the continent are most ripe and aligned for our investment criteria. I can’t imagine that we’d be as successful in deploying capital across the African continent had we not worked with Intelligent Capital; currently, 5 of our 8 portfolio companies are based in Africa.”Anna Cable
