About Us

We help entrepreneurs and investors realize their dreams of building sustainable, high growth African businesses that are also socially responsible.

How it all started

Mirepa

An Akan word

Greek: Kairos – the right or opportune time; the appointed time

We started Mirepa because of a gap we identified in the market.  After years of growing, investing in and supporting SMEs in the West African region, it become very clear that early stage businesses and SMEs looking for capital within the $100k – $1M range were grossly under served.  This segment is starved of patient risk capital as well as the capacity building that comes with smart investment.

We believe the time is right to provide the much needed interventions for this “missing middle” in our region.  We been in the trenches before as operators as well as investors and we believe we can add significant value to the next generation of entrepreneurs.  We have the relevant local experience and expertise to select and grow winners in this market.

Yin & Yang – We are both commercially driven and socially focused.  Lasting socio-economic change must be financially sustainable.

Our Vision

Our dream is to become the leading SME and early stage financier in the West African region (based on track record of investment performance as well as assets under management); making us the preferred choice for investors and entrepreneurs.
