Caribou Digital Investments     

Meaningful Investments in Digital Economies

Caribou Digital Investments is a venture and advisory company, providing capital and other support to early stage digital companies in emerging markets.


We want to demonstrate what we believe is meaningful investment in digital economies. For us, this means (a) investing in companies in alignment with our evolving views about inclusive markets and protecting livelihoods, (b) addressing agency and inclusiveness gaps in digital startup founders in terms of both gender and local founder participation, and (c) investing in business models that, in our view, are more sustainable because they bootstrap at least initially and leverage local talent.


We invest in early stage digital technology companies that improve agency, dignity, prosperity, inclusiveness and well-being in emerging markets.


We analyse business models and market trends in emerging market digital economies. We periodically publish our insights on Medium and partner websites.


We build and invest in companies when we identify opportunities to leverage Caribou Digital's unique expertise in emerging market digital economies.
