About the Opportunity
Kalon invests in people, not ideas or products. We invest in entrepreneurs who are seeing the world from a different angle and are building solutions to African problems through disruptive tech solutions.
We assist these companies with hands-on involvement, to help build the businesses into assets of value and exit the business to trade buyers or through an IPO (a buy to flip strategy).
When investing in entrepreneurs, we look at a combination of factors in our pursuit of only the best businesses and their teams within the tech industry:
Strong Management Teams
Clearly defined exit strategy
Scalable business models (Profits increase faster than revenue)
Early-stage with a revenue and profitability track record
Early-stage businesses with revenue but not yet profitable
Traction with a referenced client base
High growth potential market opportunities
High gross margins and potential for recurring revenue
High revenue and profit growth potential
Strong competitive position within their targeted sector and differentiated Intellectual Property
Please read through the following criteria carefully to ensure that your business fits the Kalon Venture Partners Mandate.
Is your business a disruptive technology solution;
Is your business generating revenue;
Do you have an impressive business model;
Is your solution attractively priced and have the potential for rapid growth;
Do you have a defensible market position;
Do you have a dynamic and motivated management team that has a meaningful equity stake in the business;
Do you require growth capital and not the capital for ideas or prototypes;
Your application must include an executive summary, a complete business plan, and financial projections.
