wCap – Women Capital

Invest. Advise. Access. Connect

We back the best women founders for the best returns.

We help women-led businesses access capital, knowledge, networks and markets they need to build and scale successful enterprises.


We focus on high growth industries that are here for the long-haul, in any sector, however we have a keen interest in Agriculture, ICT, Fintech, Manufacturing, Tourism, and Health etc.

We invest in established businesses with a working product  or service and proven track record of at least three years or more, that are in the growth stage.  Our approach as investors is hands-on.  We recognise that we add value when we work together, so we’re with you every step of the way from growth to exit for you to tap into our experience and connect with our networks.


Ultimately, we invest in people.  We are gender diverse but acknowledge that women are often overlooked and under-represented so we work with women owned and women-led businesses to make sure they get the best possible outcomes with us.

Our requirement for investment is simply that at least one founder be female (or at least one woman in leadership and holding equity). We will however consider companies who might not be there yet but have plans to get there within 12 months.
