Flat6Labs, a Cairo, Egypt-based seed venture capital firm operating in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region, appointed Christine Namara as Partner for its Africa Seed Fund.
With more than a decade of profound experience in private equity, startup operations, and venture capital, Namara brings expertise and an extensive network to Flat6Labs’ recently announced US $95m Africa Seed Fund (ASF), aimed at nurturing early-stage tech startups across Africa.
Africa Seed Fund has three key focus investment regions: North Africa, West Africa, and East Africa, which will see Flat6Labs expanding its footprint into East and West Africa. Over the next five years, ASF aims to invest in more than 160 early-stage startups operating in the technology sector in Africa.
Namara’s regional expertise will be instrumental in establishing and managing such a presence, ensuring a seamless integration with the local startup ecosystems. In her previous roles at two prominent high-growth startups in East Africa, Namara refined her skills in B2B sales, people management, and product management.
She joins Africa Seed Fund General Partners Dina el-Shenoufy and Ramez El Serafy.
