We are thrilled to share that Aruwa Capital has been honoured with the prestigious Newcomer award at the recent African Private Capital (“AVCA”) 20th Anniversary Conference Awards.

Being one of the seven funds selected, the Newcomer award recognises fund managers established in the last decade that have made remarkable strides and will be the industry leaders in the future. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team and symbolizes our ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation.

Being nominated in three esteemed categories was already an incredible achievement for us, but winning the Newcomer award is truly a milestone worth celebrating. It highlights the impact we’re making in the private capital industry in Africa, closing the funding gap for overlooked businesses and investing in under served and underrepresented founders. We are making a real impact through every investment and this industry wide recognition is a testament to the dent we have made in the African investment ecosystem in under 5 years.

We are immensely grateful to AVCA for providing us with this distinguished honour and recognizing our efforts to close the SME and gender funding gap in our markets. It’s a reminder of the positive change we’re effecting in the industry.

We couldn’t have achieved this without the unwavering support of our partners, our investors, entrepreneurs, advisors and investment committee members. Your belief in our mission and your continued support drives us forward every day. Thank you for being a part of our journey.

Let’s continue to push boundaries, challenge the status quo, and create a better future for African businesses and communities. Together, we’re making a difference that will be remembered for generations to come.
