Mauritius-based PE firm Ascent Capital launches in Ethiopia

german-private-equityMauritius-based PE firm Ascent Capital has launched in Ethiopia and is calling SME’s to knock its doors for investments.

With offices in Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya the firm expects to invest in SME’s with revenues from $2 million to $5 million for a ten-year lifetime to exist.

“We invest between USD 2-5 million per company. If everything goes well, which we hope it will, then we share the reward but if things do not go well we share the risk as well. And, of course, we target good dynamic Ethiopian entrepreneurs and there are many of them in this country,” Managing Partner Lucas Kranck told Ethiopia’s The Reporter.
