In these times of geopolitical turbulence and economic disruption, resilient businesses with the ability to find opportunities in niche markets can still thrive. Investec is proud of the partnerships we have struck with entrepreneurial firms who have these qualities, as we are to support the SAVCA Industry Awards, which play a pivotal role in acknowledging the businesses that are making a difference.
Andrew Moffat – Joint head: Investec Investment Banking
The Southern African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (SAVCA) in partnership with Investec is excited to announce the third in-person SAVCA Industry Awards 2022. These awards will recognise portfolio companies that have thrived from private equity and venture capital investment in the region as well as the value these asset classes provide: mentorship, market access, business development, guidance around corporate governance and so much more. All portfolio companies (headquartered in Southern Africa) currently benefiting from these types of investments are eligible for consideration by our panel of renowned business leaders and captains of industry.
