About us

Tenet Investment Company (“Tenet”) is a private equity fund manager formed to make investments in growing companies across Africa. Our first fund is focused on the foods and agribusiness sectors on the continent, with particular emphasis on East and West Africa. We invest in emerging and mid-sized companies across the foods and agribusiness value chain seeking growth capital.

Tenet believes that the key to unlocking Africa’s potential lies in the industrialization of her primary resources. With Africa accounting for over 50% of global arable land, the social and economic impact of a thriving agribusiness sector is unquestionable. The opportunities for increasing the continent’s share of global food exports, for import substitution and to feed its young and growing population, are of immense scope and a scale in excess of US$100 billion per annum.
