About Us

We believe that with insights, growth capital, and guidance, we can help transform
businesses and make their growth stories possible.

A BIT ABOUT THE COMPANY HISTORY

wCap was created out of the desire to close the funding gap of African female entrepreneurs who were overlooked by the financial system but are building big businesses for the future.

The evidence is there; women owned/led businesses are one of the greatest untapped opportunities for return on investment.  We want to level the playing field, so women-owned/led businesses can compete and have access to capital and transformative skills. 

As female founders and executives, we understand the bias that women commonly face when building or running businesses that disadvantage them and hold them back. We don’t ask women to prove they can do it because we know they can.
VISION AND MISSION STATEMENTS

We believe in the power of women, we believe in women capital – the skills, habits, knowledge, attributes, and personalities that women bring to the table for economic value. 

We believe that investing in women leads to economic and social returns for investors, that’s why we invest growth capital in women owned, or women led businesses to unlock their potential to take them to scale and maximize profits.

We invest in post revenue, high growth, women owned or women led companies that are looking for growth capital. We target formal SMEs (the missing middle) in investments

We invest across multiple industries with high growth potential Currently our investments are for businesses with offices and customers in Zambia

But more than just looking at women from a business perspective only, we understand the challenge of balance especially in the African cultural setup, and we’ll work with women leaders to be able to succeed without compromise.

We believe that with insights, growth capital, and guidance, we can help transform businesses and make their growth possible.
