Vegan Africa Fund
We support ventures with local traction and a global vision.
Africa has 17% of the global population, yet receives less than 1% of venture funding. A lack of equitable access to capital is has inhibited community-driven business success, and Africa is the highest growth region to invest.
Projections from analysts like Bloomberg Intelligence show that the global vegan food market will to grow over 500% by 2030. VAF is building the network to empower eco-ventures to thrive in this time while building more regenerative, resilient communities.
Climate change threatens life as we know it, and the best solution, which is supported by United Nations' scientists, is that the majority of the world shifts to a plant-based diet.
Africa has not yet seen mass-adoption of rainforest destruction for factory farming. How consumer decisions are shaped in the next decade will determine sustainability in the future. We invest in companies now that will lead the vegan product markets across Africa and globally in the next century.
