Kernel Fund is an Angel fund that invests seed capital in early stage companies with high growth potential. Our goal is to provide seed capital and strategic advisory resources to early-stage companies that focus on using technology to fill significant economic and infrastructure gaps for consumers and enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa.
We are a group of seasoned technology practitioners and investors with deep experience in building technology startups, technology strategy, marketing, M&A and finance. Our team brings a wealth of experience to the table as business owners and individuals with rich careers in established technology firms such as Dell, Amazon & Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, etc. Our experience spans the USA, Europe and Africa in terms of professional and investment experience.
We look to invest in multiples of $25,000 – $50,000 in our portfolio companies in the initial seed round – the initial range is usually between $25,000 – $200,000. That investment brings with it a commitment to help grow the company which may include participating in future rounds as needed.
