Compass is a venture capital fund which invests in and adds value to start-ups in Mauritius and in the East African region.
Compass invests up to 40 million rupees for equity investment in innovative and scalable companies for a significant minority shareholding (usually between 15% and 40% of the share capital).
We provide growth capital to companies that demonstrate a strong traction and are led by outstanding teams. We invest in every sector of the economy but we prioritise tech enabled companies in the education, health, energy and smart city sectors.
In addition to equity participation, we offer strategic support, access to our regional network of experts and resources, and access to market.
Since our incorporation in 2016, we have screened more than 350 businesses and invested Rs 115 million in six ventures.
