The Ascar approach is to help businesses scale efficiently and as a result employ many more people in sectors that are traditionally large contributors to the labour force i.e. FMCG, Financial and Business Services, Technology, Real Estate and Agri-Business. We bring the operational expertise to grow businesses beyond a small operation, towards medium and large enterprises.
What We Do
We fund SMEs with sustainable business models and an intrinsic focus on a product or service that can scale and help them grow to be established businesses.
The Ascar approach is to focus on companies which have passed the proof of concept phase, and have a tangible product or service that has seen market acceptance and help them scale.
We provide capital for these businesses to scale, but also ensure we transfer our skills and experience to the management team who will work towards a well-defined long term strategy.
