Venture Capital

Our institution is of the strong conviction that without access to the funding (seed, start-up and early stage capital), management support, strategy inputs and mentoring which a focused venture capital enterprise such as ours can provide, many viable business upstarts in Nigeria may never be able to prove their concepts and achieve mass market acceptance for their products and services.

 

Many entrepreneurs who have already developed their product offering may similarly be desirous of working with us to seamlessly accomplish their corporate evolution by using expansion and/or replacement capital to further expand their product suite, achieve economies of scale, pay down costly debt and gain presence in geographical markets and/or customer segments which they were hitherto incapable of accessing.

 
We seek to play an involved and instrumental role in the development of a 'conveyor belt' or 'production line' of the next-generation of sector champions or firms with market leadership and export potential in high-growth sectors in Nigeria.
 
Greenfield Advisors Limited is always keen to identify and collaborate with promising start-ups and established businesses requiring growth capital, mentoring and technical support. This is because we have observed the dearth of new listings on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and we fully appreciate the crucial importance of small and medium-sized businesses in the deepening of the domestic economy in the long-term.
 
Our commercial strategy in the Venture Capital space is to;
  • Advise and/or seed qualifying investee companies.
  • Help develop investees for follow-on financing
  • Intermediate between users and providers of venture financing
  • Help nurture these enterprises by enhancing their processes in aid of value creation
  • Take stakes in future champions
We intend to add value across the entire value-chain and will seek to be in position to help develop these companies and position them for more advanced stages of their corporate life-cycle.
