About Us

Comoé Capital is an investment fund that provides funding and support for Ivorian small and medium enterprises with financing needs between 20 and 300 million FCFA, often slowed down in their development by difficult access to long-term financing and skills.

Who are we ?

Comoé Capital is a private company under Ivorian law created in 2018 by entrepreneurs and private actors including Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P), a pioneering group in impact investment, entirely dedicated to the financing and support of start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Our mission

Our method

Bring funding and strategic support

Our values

Entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to development, integrity, commitment to excellence

Our approach

Comoé Capital works with Ivorian entrepreneurs and local suppliers to develop a dynamic community of SMEs in Côte d’Ivoire. Working with the entrepreneur, we build a strategy to boost the company’s development.

Our approach is organized around the entrepreneur with whom we aim to build a long-term relationship based on trust.

FUNDING

Comoé Capital offers financing adapted to the size and maturity of companies (minority equity investments, seed financing, etc.).

SUPPORT

Through a regular and personalized follow-up, Comoé Capital allows the entrepreneur and his teams to strengthen their capacities. Comoé Capital also contributes to strategic thinking and corporate governance.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Comoé Capital offers technical assistance resources to companies through skills development, know-how transfer and training

NETWORK

Comoé Capital is part of a pan-african network of investment companies supported by I&P: Teranga Capital in Senegal, Sinergi in Niger, Sinergi Burkina in Burkina Faso and Miarakap in Madagascar. This network builds common skills and initiatives to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem between countries.

The companies supported by Comoé Capital have access to an Ivorian, pan-african and international network of shareholders and entrepreneurs, including the African Club of Entrepreneurs, a pan-african association that offers high value services to entrepreneurs.

 

Our Impact Objectives

We are persuaded that companies have an essential social role in the real economy.

In addition to the extra-financial activities, Comoé Capital is a committed player in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria.

One of our objectives is also to promote the social and environmental responsibility of the company and build with the entrepreneur an action plan to boost the impacts on each of its stakeholders (employees, customers, local communities, suppliers…), referring to the framework established by the United Nations with the Sustainable Development Goals.

Entrepreneur Corner

In parallel with its investment activities, Comoé Capital publishes Entrepreneur Corner, a trimestrial magazine providing a sector analysis (education, health, digital, etc.), and success-stories of entrepreneurs. More than just an information support, Entrepreneur Corner is a real advocacy tool in favor of Ivorian entrepreneurship.
