8 Miles invests in regions of Africa and business sectors where its approach can deliver the best results. Besides the individual business case, we focus on countries with strong macroeconomic fundamentals, good governance, a favourable regime for foreign investors, and a track record of private sector reforms. All of this makes doing business easier.

We typically invest between US$15 million and US$45 million in each business we back. We only invest in African businesses and sectors with high growth prospects, and we enhance performance by implementing our "active ownership" approach when partnering with entrepreneurs and working alongside management teams.
