About Us

East Africa Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EAVCA) is the umbrella organisation that represents private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) funds in East Africa.

Established by seven founding fund managers with operations in East Africa, the association has grown over the last five years to current membership of 65 companies, representing DFIs, PE and VC fund managers, asset managers, and advisory firms.


EAVCA is the collective voice of the private capital industry with the public stakeholders, championing the cause of the sector with governments in East Africa, regulators, other industry associations and the capital markets operators- who include pension funds, asset managers, and fund administrators.


Our training mandate involves capacity building of the professionals in the industry, by organising trainings relevant to private capital investment. We ensure our trainings are led by local experts who can share their local case studies for relevant and relatable sessions.


EAVCA aims to be the first point of knowledge for investors looking at East Africa as a destination for capital, providing market intelligence to the trends and opportunities that affect investing in the region.


Our role as a network facilitator allows us to create opportunities for our members to interact with governments, regulators and other stakeholders, to form synergies that are mutually beneficial.
