Harvest Fund

Who are we?

The Harvest Funds, established by Endeavor SA, and modelled off Endeavor Global’s successful Catalyst Funds, is a ‘first of its kind in Africa’ rules-based co-investment fund investing in local Endeavor Entrepreneurs.

Harvest co-invests alongside credible lead investors and leverages Endeavor’s rigorous selection process – one that selects market-leading, founder-led companies with exceptionally strong local & global growth, scalable IP, a pay-it-forward mindset, and robust returns.  The Harvest Funds are structured such that 100% of the GP’s carry will be reinvested back into the ecosystem.
