Central Africa Investment (CENAINVEST S.A.) is a Private Equity Management Company operating in Central Africa. Our mission is to promote entrepreneurship in order to contribute to a sustainable economic development in a respectful social environment to the benefit of Cameroon and Central Africa.
CENAINVEST was founded in 1998 in order to stimulate the development of the private sector by providing long-term finance. We pioneered in the market and are currently among the major players in the private equity industry in Central Africa.
Our activities cover long-term finance in the form of equity and quasi-equity and we also offer corporate finance, including advisory services. Initially, our focus was on seed-capital for start-ups, but over the years we have grown to a fund providing capital for businesses in different stages, from start-up to second-stage businesses and from expansion to turnaround projects.
Over the past 10 years, more than thirty companies have benefited from our products, services and expertise. We financed and assisted start-ups, expansion and turnaround projects. Our investee companies are operating in a wide variety of sectors and are located in different countries across Central Africa.
