VestedWorld

Active

VestedWorld is an investment fund focused on investing in early-stage companies within emerging markets that are in industries that are core to any growing economy (e.g., manufacturing, agribusiness, packaged goods, etc.). Currently, we have six portfolio companies in four countries (Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana), and are seeking to grow our portfolio in East and West Africa, with a long-term goal of expanding to other emerging and developing markets. We seek to invest in companies that, if successful, will have significant impact on their communities and home economies. Additionally, VestedWorld is cultivating an online community of angel investors (“VestedAngels”) that invest alongside us in these early-stage companies, with the goal of catalyzing overall investment into our focus geographies through investor education and experiences.
