In the 2022 letter to shareholders, one of Warren Buffett’s best quotes was, “At Berkshire, there will be no finish line.“
Africa Eats is not a fund. We don’t exist for just 10 years, to create a short-term growth spurt, gain a profit for our investors, and disappear from the world. Instead, our business model includes some core ideas from Berkshire Hathaway, with the central core that we’re a perpetual, permanent capital supplier. Or in more concrete terms, that we exist to help our portfolio companies grow, for as long as they want to keep growing.
At Africa Eats, there is no finish line either.
