what we do



Our work is centered around 4 pillars that we believe are the cornerstones of a thriving ecosystem and the foundation upon which sustainable businesses are built. It is not unusual to find within a developing economy that there are deficits within an ecosystem. In some cases these functions can be non-existent, capital deprived or disconnected equating to a fragmented and fragile ecosystem. In order to accelerate development, we recommend that you start with these key priority areas.



Intellectual Capital

Synthesize insights on high-growth sectors and consumer segments to identify attractive market opportunities and gaps

Social Capital

Strengthen ecosystem to establish relationships and networks between key players in the SME landscap

Financial Capital

Facilitate interactions with early-stage investors to expose entrepreneurs to funding requirements and fundraising process

Human Capital

“Based in Atlanta, Georgia, we felt we needed to rely on a local partner to help reflect our blindspots in communication, strategy of entry, and which markets within the continent are most ripe and aligned for our investment criteria. I can’t imagine that we’d be as successful in deploying capital across the African continent had we not worked with Intelligent Capital; currently, 5 of our 8 portfolio companies are based in Africa.”
