The Kara Manifesto: The foundation of our commitment to investing in the continent.

After spending 12 months exploring Africa and meeting with over 300 startups, we are convinced that Africa is one of the most promising landscapes for building tech companies.

Kara Ventures focuses on pre-seed and seed stages because there's a need for more funding to create a quality deal flow for Series A and Series B rounds. This aligns with our broader mission to strengthen the Africa Tech ecosystem.
