About Us Overview

SpringHill Equity Partners is a private investor circle providing venture capital and support to early-stage, rapidly growing businesses serving base-of-the-pyramid markets in East Africa. Every SpringHill investment targets both attractive financial returns and significant social benefit:

  • Double-digit financial returns net of foreign exchange losses and all expenses
  • Large scale measurable social benefit to low-income consumers, in addition to creating jobs and expanding the local tax base

Based on the strength of the portfolio and the pipeline of investment opportunities developed over the past four years, SpringHill’s partners are forming a new venture fund - Novastar Ventures - that will expand and accelerate the existing investment program.

SpringHill aims to cultivate a reputation and platform to promote a new asset class to fight poverty by fueling enterprise in underserved areas.
