GF Investments is the equity arm of GF Consulting. We are passionate about incubating and operationalising new business ventures. It is therefore our intention to build a diversified investment portfolio consisting of equity stakes in a number of businesses where we believe there is significant revenue and growth potential.

We have an active investment approach and seek to provide not only strategic guidance, but to also take a keen interest in the daily operational activities of the business when required. Although our preference is to be actively involved in our investments, we are open to approach by individuals and companies for opportunities whereby GF Investments provides mainly funding in a typical venture capital model. Each opportunity will be evaluated accordingly before a funding and involvement decision is made.

Through the activities of GF Consulting, GF Investments is confident of the value we can add in assisting individuals or companies to pursue their business development projects and incubating their ideas into successful new ventures. These services can be structured in various ways, either as a fee for service model, a profit share of revenue generated, or alternatively an equity stake in the venture moving forward. We therefore not only provide our clients with strategic guidance, but also with a sense of reassurance and comfort that we are willing to “put our money where our mouth is” and thereby ensure that both our goals are 100% aligned.

“We are entrepreneurs at heart and our passion is starting and growing businesses. We believe the best way to go about this is in partnership with our clients, providing the structure and resources that make it happen!”
