Goodwell has a proven track record investing in innovative financial services companies, as well as experience supporting fast-scaling teams, and deep networks in the FinTech sector.

According to Wim van der Beek, managing partner at Goodwell Investments, the impact-investing firm (which already has three funds fully invested) is targeting start-ups at the early-growth stage with high scalability promoting financial inclusion by utilising technology. This explains its interest in Nomanini.

Van der Beek said:

"We expect a lot from their platform and their team. We only invest in companies and teams that have demonstrated a strong capability and growth potential. That is the case with Nomanini."

The investment in Nomanini is the second on-the-ground investment made by Goodwell Investments in South Africa from its EURO50-million uMunthu fund, which is targeting start-ups and high-growth companies in the financial inclusion and FinTech space in Sub-Saharan Africa.
