Funding Structure

We co-invest with investors in fast growth and high yielding companies and partner with the uncompromisingly ambitious entrepreneurs, who are committed to a vision of global growth and scale. We want to create a global network of enterprises that improve lives in the region and globally. Winam Capital seeks to accelerate businesses with the tools needed to deliver both financial and optimum business performance. Ventures are taken though a two month investor readiness programme where they are prepared before linking up to investors.
We welcome opportunities to co-invest with like-minded investors and often build syndicates to channel capital into promising opportunities. We continue to support companies as they grow through follow-on capital that drives scale.


Winam Capital is an active and engaged investor, providing investees with strategic and operational support across a broad range of business areas. We do this through governance, often in the form of a board role, as well as through our portfolio engagement function, which consists of an in-house team that works closely with portfolio companies in the areas of growth strategy, customer insights, product and pricing, process and operations, and human capital. In addition to day-to-day support from the Venture team, investee companies may get connected to Winam Capital’s technical experts (technology, risk management, etc.), finance teams and customers from partner institutions around the world, and the regional banking and investing community.
