Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs (E4E Africa) is a Venture Capital Fund that supports early-stage businesses in Southern and Eastern Africa. E4E Africa’s first fund was solely focused on South Africa, with its second fund expanding its geographic reach to include Southern and Eastern Africa. E4E Africa invests in Africa’s best entrepreneurs who build scalable businesses that address the continent’s major problems.


E4E Africa deploys entrepreneur-aligned growth capital by investing early in companies while also establishing an ability to provide scale-up capital for outperformers. E4E Africa provides hands-on business-building support to founder teams through its unique team of leading experienced founders and investment professionals backing the next generation of African entrepreneurs.


Oppenheimer Generations Philanthropies, through its OG Impact Fund, invested in E4E Africa in September 2022. The purpose of investing in E4E Africa was to provide much-needed early-stage investment capital to businesses that positively impacted communities. As part of its broader efforts to support the early-stage venture ecosystem, the OG Impact Fund also provided a technical assistance grant that would enable E4E to provide additional resources and attention to businesses in their portfolio.

The team of seasoned founders at E4E has proven to be exceptionally supportive. They advocate for a hands-on approach to assisting founders in building their ventures. Their approach involves stimulating thoughtful consideration, and they firmly believe that businesses in Africa can catalyse bringing prosperity to the people in the region. Their hindsight has become our foresight.
