​​Growth Capital Africa



Supporting the growth of African champions

Created in 2012, Amethis invests in and supports the development of African SMEs with strong potential to become the regional champions of tomorrow.

Amethis offers two strategies: a pan-African strategy and a strategy for North Africa and the Middle East.


Linking Private Equity professionals and African specialists

Investments in family-owned companies specialising in sectors that are dynamic, diversified and fuelled by domestic consumption. Opportunistic buyouts thanks to the team’s knowledge of African countries and its long-term relationships.

Positioning ourselves as a strategic partner

Amethis – a strategic minority shareholder – channels all its entrepreneurial skills so that it can lead the companies it supports towards sustainable growth.

Being a committed and responsible investor

Using a targeted impact strategy, Amethis’s investments help meet the continent’s social and environmental challenges: support for local economies, job creation and environmental protection.
