19 fund managers are in Capria’s growing network, collectively with over $350M in assets under management, tapping into a USD $5 trillion opportunity via VC and innovative debt
Innovative, fast-growing tech-enabled businesses can profitably serve consumer and business needs in vast, largely under-served markets of Latin America, Africa, and South / SE Asia.
Early-growth businesses in emerging markets are largely undervalued compared to those in overheated developed economies. Buyers’ markets are well known to produce more consistent returns.
Investing in a diverse range of companies primarily addressing local consumption of essential products and services results in resilience to economic downturns.
Capria makes VC and innovative debt investments from its target USD $100M fund into select countries in Latin America, Africa, and Asia (ex. China) both through and alongside local fund managers.
Our first close included Vulcan Capital (family office), Bill Gates (family office), Omidyar Network, International Finance Corporation, Ford Foundation and other family offices and institutional investors.
Capria is already making smarter investments, creating more value, and will get better exits by leveraging hundreds of years of collective investing experience of 40+ investment professionals.
Capria invests alongside our partners in dual-vetted companies not otherwise accessible to overseas investors, and offers such opportunities to our LPs as well.
Capria delivers returns through a carefully crafted combination of partner GP profits (% of carry & management fees), anchor LP positions, and direct company investments.
Capria has been building its partner network since 2015. In late 2018 we achieved first close of our target $100M fund, from which we are actively investing now. We are engaging with LPs for due diligence leading to our penultimate close in Q4 2019.
