What do an independent film company, an Internet of Things company and a gaming studio have in common?
They all got their start with the backing of Talent10.
Having already built his success, Wayne Fitzjohn founded Talent10 in 2012 to pursue his purpose, to help visionaries realise their dreams. Along with Sipho Nkosi, Mxolisi Mgojo and Dr Humphrey Mathe, they have grown a portfolio of companies in excess of US $1 billion.
The way we support investee companies stands out from the crowd. How? We support entrepreneurs with finances, strategy, management, sales and marketing. We also provide diverse commercial networks, as well as our own 20 years of deal-making expertise. We don’t believe in being ‘boxed in’, nor do we believe in boxing our companies into just one, narrow idea of entrepreneurship. Our business-centric mindset is driven by long-term value. We invest in companies where executive management holds a significant shareholding. From here, we look at how we can bring value to the business over and above funding.
We don’t believe in shortcuts. Our partnership is built on collaboration and trust.
