Welcome to HEVA: Africa’s first dedicated finance, business support and knowledge facility for creative industries.

Since 2013, HEVA has generated insights, rolled out investments, and innovated financial models specifically for the growth of the creative economy in East Africa.

We have invested in more than 30 creative businesses and directly supported over 500 creative practitioners in the fashion, digital content and television, live music and gaming value-chains.

From Nairobi, Kampala, Kigali, Arusha, Lamu to Dar es Salaam, the creative sector is where the creation of new products and new cultural experiences is happening.

We want to be at the forefront of helping producers of cultural goods and services to build high-value, profitable businesses where new ideas will come to life, and where the highest potential for great profits, great jobs, and happy people will be found.
