- Entrepreneurs who are driven to create lasting social impact
What We Do for Our Portfolio Companies
Founders of early-stage ventures often struggle with product-market-channel-model fit. Atlantica brings decades of experience, extensive partner networks across key verticals, and a Data Science Team to help Founders validate their businesses and illuminate paths to scale.
Growth and Business Development
Getting to scale is a goal for every startup, however the path to scale and quality unit economics during growth are sometimes overlooked. Our deep experience in financial and cash management, pan-African relationships with key infrastructure providers (Banks, Telcos, FMCG, etc.), and Data Science Team help startups to scale efficiently.
Follow on funding and access to a wide capital market provide much-needed fuel to startups to reach escape velocity. We leverage a global network of investors that seek to co-invest and follow-on network of investors that seek access to Atlantica Ventures portfolio. We support our portfolio companies through the difficult and time-consuming activities of fundraising and negotiating agreements, enabling Founders to focus on their core competency: building great companies.
