Frankfurt (Germany) and Lagos (Nigeria), September 2020. GreenTec Capital Partners is very pleased to announce that Mr. Harry ‘Tomi Davies (TD) has joined the team in the role of Chief Investment Officer, where he will use his considerable experience in African early stage investment to develop our portfolio of impactful African start-ups. Mr. Davies’ name has become synonymous with angel investment on the continent and we could not imagine a more appropriate figure to assume the role.

‘Tomi has a long and storied career, beginning as a system analyst who led implementation of innovative technology-driven transformation initiatives in the Oil & Gas, Retail, Information Technology and Telecommunications industries for influential global brands Elf Aquitaine, Marks & Spencer, Ernst & Young and Sapient across Europe, the United States and Southeast Asia.

In 2000 his focus shifted to Africa where he helped create the African Agriculture Technology Foundation (AATF), led the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative in Nigeria and delivered a World Bank pilot of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) that uncovered over 20,000 ghost workers in the Nigerian Government payroll system. Leading these kinds of innovative initiatives in Africa using his goal-oriented approach to project delivery which consistently delivered effective results inspired his 2014 book “The African Project Manager”.

Mr. Davies is currently the Chairman of TextNigeria (Telecoms) and Non-Executive Director at both MBO Capital (Private Equity) and Big Cabal Media (Media & Entertainment). He is a member of the Lagos State Science, Research & Innovation Council (LASRIC) and is a co-founder of the tech education non-profit Laptops4Learning (L4L) Nigeria. TD is a co-founder of the Lagos Angel Network (LAN), founding President of the African Business Angel Network (ABAN) and sits on the boards of the World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) and the Global Business Angels Network (GBAN).

As a thought leader with increasing knowledge gained from nurturing entrepreneurs in a growing personal portfolio of over a dozen tech-enabled early stage business ventures originating from Africa, TD’s personal mission is “to help drive Africa’s development by supporting young entrepreneurs using innovation and technology to create social impact and economic value.”

Please join us, in welcoming Mr. Davies to the team!
