Andrea Böhmert is a partner at Knife Capital
Knife Capital is an independent growth equity investment firm focusing on innovation-driven ventures with proven traction. By leveraging knowledge, networks & funding, we accelerate the international expansion of entrepreneurial businesses that achieved a product/market fit in a beachhead market. We have offices in Cape Town and London and invest via a consortium of funds under management, including SARS section 12J Venture Capital Company: KNF Ventures, Grindstone Ventures and Knife III, a $50m fund focused on supporting the international expansion of South Africa's high growth scale-ups.
My goal is to prove that South African founders and the companies they build can compete on a global level. Simultaneously I want to prove that Venture Capital as an asset class in South Africa can work. Both goals require persistence, an understanding of the why and the how. I see myself as a business builder and a business partner, captivated by founders who have a deeper motivation and embrace the journey. I know that one needs an ecosystem to succeed and I am trying to play my part in building that.
I am motivated by the people I work with. I thrive on trust. I believe that it can be done.
