About Us

Matamba Anonaka Technology Holdings (MATHs), the first technology focused Venture Capital Company in Zimbabwe, was established in 2010 with the objective to invest and take early advantage of the opportunities in Zimbabwe’s pre-emerging Technology Sector.

The company sets out to achieve its goals by identifying gaps in the market for goods and services successfully delivered elsewhere in the world. We then bring together local entrepreneurs and international technical partners and suppliers to establish and develop new companies to address these opportunities.

As a venture capital company we retain a direct interest in these companies, nurturing and growing them to financial independence, guiding the entrepreneurs that manage them and preparing them for further investment and growth.

Strategy

Zimbabwe provides a unique investment opportunity for the discerning investor in Africa. The decline of the Country in the last decade is directly attributable to inappropriate economic management decisions by Government. Zimbabwe’s basic underlying infrastructure remains reasonably sound unlike other African countries that generally have to rebuild after decades of civil war.

With the relative stabilization of the political arena and the currency conversion to United States Dollars, there is an exciting opportunity to invest into an almost untapped market.

Investment criteria

We invest in existing predominantly technology‐driven businesses with a track record or Greenfield “start‐ups” in a proven growing market and/or with an internationally recognized product, service and partner.

We invest where management can demonstrate a sound strategy, business model and expertise to deal competently with the unexpected and offer sustainable competitive advantage. Ideally we look to invest a minimum of 35% ownership.
