What we look for

/ 01

Industry focus

AlphaCode Venture Partners focuses on financial services (banking and payments, lending, insurance, savings and investments, asset management), and tangential industries (education, health and agriculture), where there may be an embedded financial services value proposition or application.

/ 02


We invest in framework-driven, focused African markets that have either large or emerging, fast-growing financial services industries and enabling macro-economic and regulatory dynamics. Target businesses are headquartered/registered in Africa (primarily South Africa); or are domiciled elsewhere but have a strategic focus, market footprint and/or operational capability in Africa; or are African businesses with regional and/or global relevance

/ 03

Business life-stage

Our focal point is early-stage business, that are post-revenue, have demonstrated product-market fit, and are on a path for scale.
