About Us

Founded in 2006 by a group of dedicated entrepreneurs, Simeka invests in businesses and projects where it can add value, seeking both commercially attractive returns as well as broader socio-economic impact.

Simeka, a Xitsonga word from which our company derives its name, means to plant, nurture, anchor or balance. Our insignia, the baobab tree, is a symbol of resilience, sturdiness and growth – the qualities that form the basis of our business values and operational philosophy.

Vision | About Simeka Capital
