Helios Digital Ventures

Helios Digital Ventures targets the emerging venture capital opportunity on the African continent which is still significantly underpenetrated relative to other emerging markets and focuses on early-growth venture rounds (Series B+) which are still the most underfunded in Africa but have a shorter path to liquidity. The fund targets revenue generating, high growth technology companies in 3 main sectors :


  • Fintech
  • Human Capital
  • Applications of Emerging Technologies


We believe innovation can come from anywhere, and we see a massive opportunity for digital innovation in Africa, underpinned by the intersection of, on the one hand, a young, urbanizing population, that is highly digitally engaged, and entrepreneurship on the other hand.

The fund backs mission driven founders to build the next pan-African digital champions by providing them with capital and leveraging our deep local networks and business building expertise to help them reach scale rapidly.
