Helios has partnered with Wale Ayeni to head its venture capital strategy and launch Helios Digital Ventures. An explosion in innovation is underway in Africa, driven by a youthful and urbanising demographic and the availability of cheaper and better technological tools. African tech entrepreneurs are creating value by leveraging technology to address daily needs, creating economic value, and delivering significant positive social impact. This digital transformation is poised to become a principal driver of economic growth on the continent.

Helios Digital Ventures will support founders at the early-growth stage to build long-lasting businesses using technology to rethink and deliver impact to the mass-market, focusing on large addressable market segments including education, food security, financial services, healthcare, and sustainability.
