Business Incubator
Transformation Investment

Are you a White-owned business in the supply chain of a Top 100 corporate, looking for a B-BBEE partner, 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 achieve true transformation; that they grow and their growth is funded; 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 immediately benefit from being 51% Black-owned
  • Awethu also ensures that suppliers ultimately transform across all elements of the B-BBEE Scorecard, in the spirit of true transformation - for example, investees must recruit or promote a “Black Entrepreneur” to lead a business function and apprentice the CEO. This individual will be supported by Awethu and will earn equity in the business through performance

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Realise an immediate return on the effort you’ve invested in your business
  • Continue to build your business for the future, by developing a hand-picked Black Entrepreneur as your successor
  • Grow your business with the patient capital Awethu provides
  • Grow your business with your enhanced transformation credentials
  • Grow your business through the access to markets and post-investment support that Awethu provides
