Business Incubator
Growth Investment

Are you a Black-owned business in the supply chain of a Top 100, corporate looking for growth capital and support?

WHAT WE DO

  • We make equity investments in fast-growing suppliers of Top 100 companies
  • We support investees to ensure that they grow and that their growth is funded, that they remain transformed in the spirit of true transformation, and that they deliver on their commitments

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Awethu is a Black Private Equity Fund Manager, a special designation in the DTI’s B-BBEE Codes
  • Funds managed by Awethu are considered 100% Black-owned
  • Awethu’s investments enable investees to avoid diluting their B-BBEE status in order to secure growth capital
  • Awethu also assists investees to transform across all elements of the B-BBEE Scorecard, which is often an issue for Black-owned QSEs when they become Generics

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Grow your business with the patient capital Awethu provides
  • Avoid dilution of your B-BBEE credentials
  • Grow your business through the access to markets and post-investment support that Awethu provides
