COMPANY STRATEGY

OUR HISTORY

Kuria Muchiru and Christine Muthoni Kuria met at the school of Charted Public Accountants in Kenya in the 1980s. As accountants, they went on to build bright careers in the Kenyan Corporate world, together.

They achieved success in Banking and Professional Services firms, and decided to set their sights higher and build a company.

Reata Properties started with the acquisition of a small residential property in the capital; and through hard work and hard learning, it became an excelling hotel operator and developer, with some of the best reviews in the Country. 

OUR VISION

Our vision is to fund the seed stage businesses of young people in Kenya, and eventually across the East African region.

Young people in this rapidly growing economic region, face dwindling career prospects, stagnant wages and increasing costs of urban living. 

This enviroment is even more challenging for young business people; who are excluded from capital and support. 

OUR METHOD

Kuria Capital's flagship financing product is the Kuria Innovation Fund. A fund that has a 3 stream financing strategy.

 

Utilising in-house capital firstly, international Private Equity and Grant investment secondly, then eventually the creation of vehicles to activate local wealth.

Kuria Capital will aim to lead Seed rounds. Preparing term-sheets

tailored to the Kenyan market.

Our core investment approach comes from our firm's Selection Logic and

algorithms developed by our Lead Founder at Cambridge Judge Business School.
