SEAF Caribbean SME Growth Fund

SEAF’s 40th fund, the SEAF Caribbean SME Growth Fund, is a private equity fund that invests growth capital in small and medium-sized enterprises throughout the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean Common Market (CARICOM).

While sector agnostic, the Fund is seeking opportunities in promising sectors such as manufacturing, tourism, agribusiness, healthcare, training and edcuation, ICT and financial inclusio, renewable and clean energy services, retail distribution and transport and logistics. The Fund is headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica, with representative offices in Trinidad and Tobago and advisors in Guyana and Barbados.

Similar to all SEAF funds, the Fund aims to generate both attractive financial returns and strong social impact by providing equity and active business partnership to companies that have traditionally lacked access to institutional risk capital. The Fund plans to address  the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: #2 – Zero Hunger, #3 – Good Health and Well-being, #4 –  Quality Education, #8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, and #9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.
