TLcom confirms its strategic shift towards Africa with a new 71 million $ vehicle

TLcom initially wanted $100 million for the new Tide Africa Fund. “We set a high limit to guarantee that our portfolio would be sufficiently diversified,” explains Maurizio Caio, Founder and Managing Partner, to Jeune Afrique Business+. “It will be feasible with our final closing of $71 million, since we have already invested in six companies and have the resources for six more.”

TLcom plans to continue its current strategy with tickets ranging from $500,000 to $10 million, from the early to late stage. Maurizio Caio is a little more reserved when it comes to investment outflows, which are “less predictable”, even if nothing is currently expected.
