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 or having run successful accelerator programs in past but also understand the unique Subsaharan African environment. We are backed and supported by both local, regional and international networks of angels,venture capitalists whose expertise we can draw on to help startups succeed  and scale to fully fledged regional or global companies.

We believe in the potential for Africa to become a global technology innovator by creating sustainable for profit companies that create jobs and make an impact. Take a look at our accelerator or connect with us on Angel List if you  have a more mature startup.
