Founded with the spirit of Nordic industrial growth
MTI Investment AS is a Nordic/East African investment company that invests in Eastern African small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). MTI Investment AS was founded in 2014 by Professor Trond Randøy (Norway), Pontus Engström (Sweden) and Neema Mori (Tanzania) with the idea to seek investment opportunities in East Africa.
Our name “Mti” is Swahili for tree – symbolizing MTI’s focus on growing companies, with the potential to bear fruit from our long-term efforts of investing, coaching, mentoring and monitoring our portfolio companies.
The companies that we invest in are run by a team of competent local founders that can become national or regional champions and impact society positively in line with the UN SDGs. MTI Investment has made five equity investments and one debt financing in East Africa.
