The Maneli Group of companies share a common vision: to help Africa claim its share of the global manufacturing and production value chain.

Africa's vast economic potential remains virtually untapped – the continent's 54 countries currently contribute less than 2% to world trade and 1% to global manufacturing.

We at the Maneli Group are commited to driving Africa's industrialisation while creating much needed jobs and developing new skills on the continent. We know that the solution to Africa’s industrial challenges lies in entrepreneurship and commercial innovation, and this is reflected in our focused approach to:
  • Building and running new production plants and manufacturing facilities in sectors where there is growing demand or where Africa has a comparative advantage
  • Scaling up mid-size companies by injecting capital, management resources and unlocking new markets and sales channels
  • Co-investing in new commercial entities/ companies with like-minded partners in our priority sectors while taking a less active role in the day-to-day management of the investment company
In all instances, our investment interests are in opportunities that will reduce Africa's imports of finished goods and/or increase the value of the continent's exports – specifically opportunities in:
