Investing in Africa's future

Talented entrepreneurs and SMEs are the main driver of social economic development that can advance people's lives. XSML Capital brings the  finance and support to accelerate their growth.


Pioneer in frontier markets

XSML Capital are partners in growth for entrepreneurs in frontier markets in Africa. We provide expertise, network, and bespoke financing, geared to nurture local talent and bring durable and fair prosperity in underserved markets.

Bridging the credit gap

SMEs are the lifeblood of economies across the world. African economies are no different. But African entrepreneurs struggle to get affordable growth capital. This withholds them from scaling their business and fulfiling their potential.

12-year track record

Since 2010, we been investing in SMEs in challenging markets where we are the only investor providing growth capital ranging from US$ 300k to US$ 10m. So far, our teams in Kinshasa, Kampala and Luanda have helped to scale more than 70 SMEs.
