INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN. OFFERING AN IMPACT INVESTMENT IN EDUCATION.
We are a registered Mauritian domestic company (company number C18159838) under the Mauritian companies act 2001. As such we are entitled to issue shares to domestic and foreign private equity investors. We are inviting seed investors to become members of our privileged investor program now.

ZUKA Partners facilitates socio-economic funding, acting as small cap school provider and beyond in the Mauritian education sector. We turn tangible community projects into growing clusters of small education entities with an optimal cost-benefit-ratio, funded through owners and third party private equity capital. Due to the minor deal size investors can directly commit to acquire shares from ZUKA Partners.
We welcome private and institutional investors that understand our Antoine de Saint Exupéry International School project as a sustainable social impact investment with a long term growth potential. ZUKA does not use traditional private equity fund structures and instead conducts day-to-day business and investor relations itself, following international accounting and auditing standards. We avoid fund management fees and instead offer investors attractive growth potential, diversification, annual interests and dividends, share buyback programs as well as capital increases.
THE EMERGENCE OF SOCIAL IMPACT INVESTMENT
The Feasibility Study of Social Investment in Mauritius 2017 published by the Financial Services Commission Mauritius confirmed: ... Private investments in SMEs attempt to achieve the greatest social impact on local economies with a backbone driving entrepreneurship, economic growth and job creation. ... As confirmed by Henry David Thoreau, “Goodness is the only investment that never fails”. Hence, if the needs of society are made open and transparent to the society at large, investors (either individual or corporate) would be encouraged to invest in financial products that would generate social impact for the country. Subsequently, this investigation recognises that impact investment does not only generate income and wealth for a society, but also awakens fraternity among mankind, love for humanity and a healthy society to move towards economic wonder for the country, creating an enabling environment to connect demand with supply. ...
ZUKA is not a listed company. However, it is possible to buy and sell shares over the counter. Shareholders are recorded in the register of the company at the Mauritian Corporate and Business Registration Department. In the first three years, our convertible note program also offers full confidentiality and flexible payment terms. It is a loan agreement that automatically converts into equity at a qualified financing event and still enables you to benefit from value gain through price appreciation.
