YW Capital is an active strategic partner in businesses where we can leverage our empowerment credentials, experience and relationship base to unlock or realise deep commercial value.

Our investment focus categorises potential investment opportunities into one of three strategic areas – each a unique proposition for entrepreneurs and ourselves. These include strategic investments, accelerated growth investments and opportunistic investments.


Business Acceleration Fund

YW Capital has committed R20 million to invest in businesses well-positioned to deliver on the South African government’s social and economic objectives over the next five years. Whilst the launch of our fund is catalysed by the prevailing COVID-19 crisis, we intend to grow the fund to be a sustained source of strategic finance.
