Providing capital to make the world a better place.
India and Sub-Saharan Africa are at a watershed moment.
Whilst the geographic regions that comprise these markets are incredibly diverse, complex and increasingly sophisticated, they do share common characteristics. By many significant indicators, these markets are poised for explosive economic growth.
With increasing stability, governmental policies that have energized domestic markets, social and demographic changes transforming these societies, and international investment pouring in at an accelerating pace, these markets are projected to enter a phase of substantial and sustained economic expansion.
Further driven by a confluence of exploding demand, massively expanding middle-class consumer bases, increasing openness of trade, warming international relations, lower corporate taxes, and stronger regulatory and legal systems, roaring productivity in these regions has positioned them to become global powerhouses of innovation and development.
Changing the world through ingenuity.
At Equatorius, we look for new and ingenious technological solutions that can be applied across a broad range of sectors. We are actively considering deals in the following areas: AI, Mobility, Renewable Energy, HealthTech, EdTech, AgriTech, FinTech & 3D Manufacturing.
We are most interested in technology ventures that can scale quickly, and potentially globally, whilst addressing existing challenges in a novel way. We look for solutions that not only improve the lives of local communities but can provide for a better, more sustainable future.
