WELCOME TO 1K1V
One Thousand & One Voices® or 1K1V® was designed around the themes of families, capital and prosperity.
1K1V uses the best of what private equity investment has to offer with the Intellectual Capital, Relational Capital and Financial Capital—or Three-Dimensional Capital—of industry-leading family offices from around the globe.
1K1V invests in companies headquartered in, or with significant operations in Sub-Saharan Africa’s “rising markets”—those regions where our Three-Dimensional Capital can be leveraged in high-growth economies with the requisite socio-political stability. 1K1V focuses on those industries benefiting
most from Africa’s rising middle class such as consumer/retail, agribusiness, logistics/distribution and manufacturing. Target businesses include those with $2-15 million of EBITDA with significant growth trajectories, those with leading market share and sustainable competitive advantages and those family-owned businesses (which comprise the majority of Africa’s companies) in which 1K1V’s Three-Dimensional Capital may be deployed.
We are uniquely positioned to serve as a “bridge” for African companies in the U.S and other markets.Read More
