Based in Nairobi, Kenya – and with subsidiary offices in Mombasa, DSGVenCap – or VenCap as it is
often called - was founded by Heshan de Silva, Chief Executive Officer of our holding company The de Silva Group. We believe that Venture Capital should not take advantage of the financially insecure; that business should be done ethically, above-board, and driven by an inherent desire to make a positive social impact, while being commercially successful. We want to make a real and lasting impact on our beautiful Kenya by empowering young people everywhere to seize the talents and abilities they have in order to better their lives and remove the cycle of poverty that has gripped this Nation. Through our partners CFC Stanbic Bank and our Fund partners in the United States, we will work with anyone to see a brighter tomorrow.
