Welcome to Golden Mean Capital’s blog!
Our desire to effect change and bring a new perspective to venture capital investing in Africa has become so pronounced that we needed to make our voices heard.
Here at Golden Mean we are perpetually learning – through our actions on the ground in rural Africa, from our interactions with entrepreneurs, through collaboration with our technical assistance partners, from our investors, from everyone that challenges us to be better tomorrow than we are today.
We welcome the challenge, the dialogue, the reflection, the learning. We aren’t afraid to put ourselves out there, learn by doing and modify our actions in order to identify the best practices. It’s the most effective way we can have a positive impact.
We are going to use this forum as a vehicle to discuss any and all issues related to Golden Mean Capital, Africa, agriculture, impact investing, economic development and more.
Whether it’s detailing the finer points of our investment thesis and strategy, synthesizing some of the complex issues faced by those involved in investment and development in Africa, recounting memorable interactions and experiences, or simply putting in our two-cents on the current events shaping our world – this is where you’ll find it.
We’re going to have a great time telling our story and stirring up discussion. We want you to join in and hope that you do.
Let’s get to it!
