8th Season Capital

Backing The Next Generation Of Top African Venture Capital & Alternative Fund Managers

Who We Are

8th Season Capital is a private investment firm based in Johannesburg, South Africa with a focus on African Venture Capital and Social Impact Investments. We back innovation-driven and technology-enabled entrepreneurs and businesses across Africa through primary and secondary investments in specialist venture capital funds and other alternative funds – and where opportunities present themselves, through direct startup / company co-investments with our partner funds.

Investment Philosophy

We believe that responsible allocation of investors’ capital to the alternative asset classes (including Venture Capital) requires thoughtful diversification of manager skill, fund strategies and vintages to deliver on-going and demonstrated returns.

Financial markets and investments in technology-driven strategies are becoming increasingly complex and we believe that to succeed, investors need to have a diverse pool of managers, funds and investment strategies.
