ideas, early stage, and high-growth companies to achieve economic
outcomes that enrich the African continent.
Bold financial steps are vital for transformative growth.
Forest Capital Limited is a Private Equity Fund Management and
Investment Advisory Company based in Lagos. We work across the
continent, and with interests in Europe and Latin America. We

According to the World Bank, Sub-Saharan Africa alone has more than
1 billion people, half of whom will be under 25 years old by 2050.
The Sub-Sahara is a diverse part of the continent with potential to
yield inclusive growth and eradicate poverty; enabling a healthier
and more prosperous Africa. The African continent is creating an
entirely new development path, harnessing the potential of its
resources and people.
We believe novel ideas are
necessary to propel Africa. Africa is not the next Powerhouse;
Africa is the Power House. At Forest Capital, we are revealing
the true wealth of Africa.
