It works closely with its investees, providing not only tailored financial but also non-financial support and access to networks.

Having since 2006 been actively involved in the Stamp Out Sleeping sickness initiative in Uganda, providing start-up financing to a number of young veterinarians, IKARE has first-hand experience of addressing the root causes of poverty and thus the necessity of an One Health approach as well as access to accurate data for informed decision making.
IKARE’s main donor is IK Investment Partners, an European private equity group.
