Vital Capital Fund is a $350 million private equity fund that invests in opportunities which simultaneously enhance the quality of life of communities in rapidly developing nations, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa, while also delivering attractive financial returns for investors. Sub-Saharan Africa’s growth over the past decade has been extensively chronicled. A litany of reports, articles and studies tout the impressive developments enabled by a significantly more stable political and economic landscape and an increasingly successful conversion of natural resources into important national assets and critical infrastructure. Vital’s seasoned team has over 30 years of successful ‘on-the-ground’ experience in Africa across a wide range of industries.

Vital Capital Fund invites applicants to propose business ventures that could present future investment opportunities for the Fund.
