Investing in profitable businesses in South Sudan.

Kinyeti Venture Capital is a private equity investment company that makes equity and loan investments in profitable enterprises in South Sudan. The company was established in 2012 as a joint venture between Norfund and SwedFund.

  • We take our name from Mt. Kinyeti, one of South Sudan's highest points, which speaks to the aspirations that we have for our investments and their role in building a thriving private sector in South Sudan. The company aims to deliver attractive returns to our investors while creating wealth and employment in the country.

  • Kinyeti Venture Capital is not an NGO, nor does it offer concessionary lending. We prefer, assuming everything else is comparable, a 40% IRR to a 10% IRR, because Kinyeti was founded on the premise that a thriving and profitable private sector is a crucial aspect of meeting development goals in South Sudan.
