About 4Di Capital Fund 1 (4Di):
4di-logo4Di is an independent early-stage technology venture capital fund based in South Africa’s “Silicon Cape”. 4Di’s investors include the Reinet Fund, a Luxembourg based private equity investment fund chaired by Mr Johann Rupert, and E. Oppenheimer & Sons, an investment holding company representing the interests of the Oppenheimer family.

Nurture capital is the term that best describes 4Di’s purpose and philosophy. In the early days of any business, support, mentoring and access to networks is just as important as seed capital. Using tried and tested international venture capital best practices, adapted for local use, 4Di believe in agile entrepreneur-friendly finance without frills, and in working as a team with their investees to achieve their true potential.

4Di targets startup investment opportunities with high growth potential at the seed- and early-stages in the mobile, enterprise software and web sectors, seeking founder teams with hungry passion, commitment, domain expertise and deep insights into the large market problems they wish to solve with their technology solutions.
