Africa Trust Group and Samata Capital have partnered to form ATG Samata, a fund management company dedicated to making private sector investments in high growth-potential businesses in emerging markets that advance opportunities for women and promote diversity, equity and inclusion.
This partnership brings together two pioneering firms with more than 60 years of combined investing and operating experience in Africa. The united entity will continue to focus on early stage, scalable companies in high-growth industry segments that have a significant impact on women within the value chain.
