We are so glad to welcome the seven dynamic businesses that are now part of Cohort II into the HEVA fold! We will be supporting these businesses with custom-made investments using the following models: revenue sharing, convertible debt and fixed interest rate loans.

Republi.ke

Through our recently established growth fund, we work with businesses to bridge gaps in creative economy value chains and offer new opportunities to other creative entrepreneurs. The first recipient of this investment model is Republi.ke, a womenswear emporium that offers exclusive designer pieces, curated re-sale items and an array of affordable basics. Republi.ke offer much-needed floor-space to designers in strategic pop-up locations, malls and shopping centres. HEVA's support for Republi.ke will allow them to expand their available floor-space for local designers.
