What our investors are saying

Untapped Global gives me the opportunity to invest in a highly diversified list of companies, with an interesting mix both geographically and in terms of business.

I’ve been an investor of Untapped since the inception of the fund, and am very satisfied with both its impact and financial return. Untapped is the first fund that I am aware of that uses a revenue share model for asset backed financing to facilitate scaling of African businesses. What impresses me most about Untapped is its commitment to total transparency. Investors can track performance of each of Untapped loans and resulting impact through the investor portal and have full visibility to its operation.

It's easier for me to put my investment in Untapped to achieve my goals, because you are de-risking the problem of me trying to understand it all myself. How deeply can I understand all of the African markets myself? You are doing that for me, and helping me increase my reach. That's the beauty.

If I can make the same amount by putting my money in Africa as I can by putting it [in the USA/Canada], it's a no brainer. Then everyone is winning. That's what I like about Untapped, it feels like everyone is winning.

I invested in Untapped because they're working with businesses that have real growth potential, but are capital constrained. They are giving the operators the resources they need to grow the business in a de-risked way, through visibility into how the assets that support those businesses are being used.
