Established in 2012 and led by co-founding partners Koby Woodman and Jan Sell, Harbourne Partners is an African-focused capital raising and corporate advisory firm. In the highly complex and inefficient nascent market of Sub Saharan Africa, the firm provides the bridge between investment opportunities across a range of ‘growth engine’ sectors on the one hand, and foreign investors keen to combine attractive returns with major socioeconomic contributions to the continent on the other.

Seeking out high grade opportunities where investment capital can be applied efficiently is notoriously challenging on the continent. To this end, we leverage a powerful network of local, trusted and reliable contacts in government, business and the professions across a number of key sectors:

  • Energy & natural resources
  • Consumer businesses
  • Real estate
  • Corporate technology

In addition, our network of associates and advisors across the globe consists of a rich pool of first class professionals, allowing us to promote viable and profitable investment opportunities to a book of foreign investors that include large corporates and multinationals, hedge funds, financial sponsors, government institutions and high net worth individuals.

We believe that as millions of people in Africa transition from surviving in rural areas to becoming urban consumers of global products, the capital that we attract to the region and the advice we provide to local businesses can be truly transformative.
