Savant invests in innovative, African, deep tech, science and engineering companies that are addressing the continent's problems. These companies also have the ability to compete globally and export their technologies to developed markets.
Through our internal venture funds and corporate venture programmes, we focus on supporting and investing in early-stage technology companies with protectable IP and sustainable competitive advantages.
Aside from investing, Savant partners with early-stage ventures where it recognises the value in the venture’s prospects, team’s capabilities and potential commercial product offering. While Savant may have multiple stages to its approach, companies may partner with Savant further along the startup life cycle than others. Savant systematically de-risks these partnered ventures and gets them ready for commercialisation and investment.
