Preserving, nurturing and developing the entrepreneurial talent of this exciting continent
Hlayisani, which means to nurture and grow, was founded in 2016 when Angelhub Ventures (backed by Michael Jordaan and Kevin Harris), a pioneering South African Venture Capital Fund together with Dzana Investments (the Khoza family’s investment vehicle led by former Nedbank Chairman and current PIC Chairman, Dr Reuel Khoza), made common cause to jointly invest strategic support and capital into high-growth, high-impact SME growth businesses with global expansion possibilities.
