More About Us

Founded by Rinel Foguen and Michael Noumbissi, NuruHouse Ventures (“NHV”) is an early-stage venture capital firm which invests in bold entrepreneurs building innovative solutions to address Africa’s problems.


We reckon that Africa’s development is hindered by a financial gap causing Start-Ups to be underfinanced and Assets to be underinvested.
