More About Us

NuruHouse Ventures 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.
Our team works to bridge this gap by providing access to capital and expertise facilitating growth at every stage of the company building process.
