At Microtraction, we aim to be the first check to Africa's most ambitious founders, investing $100,000 for 7% in their businesses within 4-6 weeks from first engagement.

We also give our founders an option for a “quick top-up” of up to $350,000, as long as we are not more than 25% of the company’s next official fundraising round.

We are sector agnostic and heavily biased towards smart, relentlessly resourceful founders who are building high growth, technology driven businesses in billion dollar markets.
