Early-Stage, Pan-African, Venture Capital Fund investing capital and community in a new generation of African Entrepreneurs.
The Jua Fund is an early-stage, Pan-African, Venture Capital Fund that invests the first check into exceptional founders at the pre-seed and seed stage.
We are sector agnostic and back tech and tech-enabled companies with a typical check size of up to $250k. Our portfolio companies then have a direct line to capital to scale from pre-seed, to Seed, to Series A and beyond.
Our goal is to develop the continent through empowering a new generation of African entrepreneurs with equity investments, mentorship, and advisory support. We do this by leveraging the Jua Fund Advisory Network, a close-knit community of executives, entrepreneurs, investors, operators, artists, and academics, committed to helping Jua Fund Portfolio companies succeed and scale.
