Nurture was born out of a recognised need to actively seek out and seize new investment opportunities with an ongoing, hands-on approach that sees the whole process through – from just the seed of an idea to wrapping up a successful investment.

Nurture is based in Johannesburg, South Africa and specialises in private equity investments - mainly in Zimbabwe and beyond into the Southern African region.

The significance of our company name is at the forefront of everything we do.

Currently, it is our primary business to oversee and manage a range of operating investment platforms in both the agri-business and financial services sectors – with ongoing care, firm commitment and strong back-up and support.

Our Story

The Nurture team has an impressive investment and transactional record in Africa. Of significant interest, our experience includes working with Actis, Goldman Sachs, IFC, Standard Chartered Bank and Sygnia Asset Management. Nurturehas, to date, executed more than 30 advisory and investment transactions in Africa.

Our Work

It’s a lesson we learnt as kids.

"Goplay outside."

So we did. We got out there and we explored the world, pushed the limits, set our sights high. It’s what you do when you grow up in a brand new country.

Thanks, in part, to this adventurous and spirited upbringing, we have come to believe firmly that investment opportunities can be just aslimitless as the wide open spaces of our childhoods

Combine this with our collectiveexposure to global markets, our skills and international experience, not to mention the access Nurture has to a comprehensive network of expertise, and you have the strength of a multi-faceted investment analysis approach by a young, dynamic team that understands local markets in a global setting.

We have Zimbabwean roots and a global focus.

Our Culture

Nurture believes passionately in being on the ground in the markets, assessing risks and evaluating opportunities as they arise on a day-to-day basis. There’s nothing like the sense of achievement that comes from true hands-on involvement.

Nurture is actively committed to adding value to portfolio companies and we have adopted a genuine “value-add” approach, which includes active participation in investee companies.

Nurture’s shared philosophy – that insight, perception and understanding across all investment activities - gives us a significant vantage point from which to evaluate risks and will go a long way in helping us meet our investment objectives. Nurture’s unique blend of youth and experience gives a balance to our efforts and recommendations.
