Investing in ventures with significant impact solving pressing problems for a better future.

The Tapona Capital Partners aims to blend a community of investors and philanthropists to create impact-investment support. The partnership is led by leading investors and generous donors in the Tapona community who are committed to supporting impact ventures in our portfolio.

Our Focus Areas

We provide early-stage ventures long-term funding solutions and strategic and operational support as they develop their business to solve three of our society’s defining challenges: Technology, Agribusiness, and Sustainable Environment.

The investment stage is pre-seed and seed ventures building online businesses, eCommerce apps, and collective ventures in agribusiness, skills development, manufacturing, service industries, and women-led ventures, which revitalize the local economy and build a sustainable business.

Our Investment Strategies

This capital investment is not a direct grant to entrepreneurs by Tapona as an organization, instead, it represents our commitment to facilitating direct relationships between the funders and ventures that Tapona capital partners have created to connect and engage both groups to build sustainable ventures. We invest in founders who are passionate about their mission to solve pressing challenges that have a significant impact. We are thrilled to be co-leading as the impact expert in the rounds we participate.
