About us


Africa Media Fund is a privately-managed impact fund targeting media as an asset class.


The purpose of the fund is to invest in media infrastructure, unlock opportunities presented by the fourth industrial revolution; while stimulating entrepreneurship in the creative sector.

Key Priorities

To fast-track transformation within the film and broadcasting industry in line with government’s black industrialization objectives in South Africa.

To partner with governments across the African continent in closing funding gaps that exist in capitalizing, distributing and marketing local content that can travel the world.

To accelerate investments towards media infrastructure, including innovation hubs, data centers, broadcasting technology, play-out facilities, broadcasting channels, post-production facilities, film studios, AVR equipment, etc.

To empower women-owned enterprises across the production value-chain which will create jobs and access to market (special effects, makeup artists, caterers, screenwriters, sales agents, events and logistics, professional services etc.)

To upskill and train youth in preparing them for job opportunities and new markets presented by the fourth industrial revolution (artificial intelligence, augmented virtual reality, coding, digitization, automation, robotics etc.).

Strategic Pillars
