Baylis is a pure play private equity investor focused on African markets and built upon a platform that meets the highest standards of compliance and transparency.
We invest growth equity in established small to mid-market companies across African markets, in the Manufacturing and Industrials sectors (including agricultural processing), with an emphasis on unlocking their growth potential by adding substantial strategic, operational and management value. We expect to drive sustainable local job creation, enhance domestic production capacity and foster technical and managerial knowledge transfer in these sectors that are the backbone of a diversified economy.
We believe in working closely with our portfolio companies in order to create value, and we do so from the factory floor upwards. Beyond capital injection, our value-add includes driving operational enhancement and efficiency, developing and driving growth strategies, sourcing key personnel, implementing ESG best practices, and more.
