About Us


The Oak Capital

Headquartered in the city of Lagos, Nigeria, The Oak Capital is a venture capital firm established to back ambitious, underserved founders solving critical problems across Africa. With a sector agnostic approach, we invest in early stage rounds – typically in their  pre-seed to pre-series A rounds.

At The Oak Capital, we nurture and grow entrepreneurs and ideas to become heavyweight businesses and companies, and match them with an array of seasoned investors and financial experts willing to walk side by side to help you reach your goals. Our advanced pipeline universe is in excess of 30 companies, across the fintech, health-tech, and TMTP  sectors with investment opportunities of over $40M.

We understand that although some businesses might need funding alone, other businesses require a more structured management system, therefore we also offer our clients professional advisory services as well.

We understand the struggles that young entrepreneurs, small-medium scale business entrepreneurs, face in terms of seeking financing for their ideas, businesses and expansion projects, therefore, we are here to bridge that gap and help businesses to reach their attainable growth and even beyond.

Our major aim is to help businesses who need financing to expand their business. We work hand in hand with them to reach their full growth potential, while analysing risks and the business market.


Our operations are premised on these core values that form our organisational culture and guide our approach to business: Integrity and Respect


To be an economic driver and vehicle of economic empowerment, creating wealth and sustainable development in Africa, for Africa.


To be the foremost provider of finance to growing businesses.
