• We provide smart capital to grow investable startups in Africa

  • MANIFESTO

     

    Outlierz is a Moroccan based seed investment firm by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs,

    dedicated to provide smart capital to startups in Africa.

     

    We see tremendous opportunities at the intersection of Technology, Entrepreneurship and African economies.

    We believe there is talent but not enough money and appropriate resources

    to grow scalable startups from emerging ecosystems.

     

    We want to change that and enable brilliant entrepreneurs to grow successful business from Africa to the World. Thus, creating a curated deal-flow for early-stage investors and ultimately the success stories our continent needs.

     

    We are backed by some of the world most brilliant successful entrepreneurs and angel investors.

    We are pioneers. Our attitude is entrepreneurship.

    We see opportunities where others see risks.
