Investing in African Women’s Future

eha Impact Ventures is a philanthropic impact investing enterprise that supports early stage, high-impact, women led businesses in Africa. Unlike traditional business financing, we offer flexible and innovative financing paired with high-quality, local, shared business resources to ensure business growth and success.

The Problem:

<1% of funding to African start-ups went to women founders in 2021. Yet, women make up 58% of the self-employed population.

The Opportunity

Funding to African start-ups is booming, increasing 2.5x in 2021 compared to 2020.

Considering women founders outperform their male counterparts by generating a 35% higher return on investment, they are well-positioned to take more of the market.

Female founder success has an exponential impact on their families and communities.

  • Women invest 90% of their income back into their families, compared to 35% for men.
  • Women are more likely to prioritize corporate social responsibility
  • Women build companies that solve women’s problems which have been systematically overlooked
