The First Private Equity Fund Involving the Sports Community for the Emergence of African SMEs
AFRICARENA Capital Partners ("ACP") is the first Africa-focused Private Equity Fund giving elite sports athletes the unique opportunity to contribute to the emergence of the continent.
As key ambassadors of ACP, they symbolise the diversity of players (African and non-African, men and women, from various prestigious sports competitions) willing to invest in and contribute to a new and stronger Africa.
Benefiting from a dedicated investment team with strong African ties and supported by prominent members of the regional and international investment community, ACP aims to become a leading investor in African SMEs with a strong focus on social impact.
ACP will mainly target SMEs located in West and Central Africa but may also opportunistically consider opportunities in other African regions.
During its first fundraising period, ACP is looking for an exclusive partnership with an institutional investor willing to invest, together with renowned sports personalities, in the development of Africa and thereby acting as long-term partners of future African champions.
Key ambitions at the heart of ACP's investment strategy:
Supporting growth - Address the financial and strategic needs of African entrepreneurs
Long-term partnership - Build market-leading local businesses and transform them into key regional players
Social-driven platform - Create new job opportunities and boost social development notably with the creation of the AFRICARENA Foundation
Co-investment - Develop co-investment opportunities (as a leading, co-leading or minority shareholder) in specific sectors with other Africa-focused Private Equity Funds sharing common values
