Savannah Fund is a seed capital fund specializing in US$25,000-US$500,000 investments in early stage high growth technology (web and mobile) startups in sub-Saharan Africa. Initially focused on East Africa, the fund aims to bridge the early stage/angel and venture capital investment gap that currently exists in Africa. The Fund expects to achieve this objective by combining capital with mentor networks both in the region and from Silicon Valley via an accelerator program and a follow-on independent seed fund.
The fund is managed by an experienced and technology savvy team that have founded companies or are actively involved in angel investing. Members of the team have also run successful accelerator programs in the past and also understand the unique Subsaharan African environment. They are backed and supported by local, regional and international networks of angels and venture capitalists whose expertise they can draw on to help startups succeed and scale to fully fledged regional or global companies.
