Meet Milisa Mabinza.

Born and bred in Secunda in Mpumalanga, Milisa is the founder of Khula Lula, a private equity fund that focuses on creating access to micro-financing and scale for black female-owned tech startups. Milisa saw a gap in the market where black female-owned startups are often neglected in funding as a result of a lack of diversity in private equity funds.

She founded Khula Lula in 2019 after a tragedy in her family encouraged her to go forward and follow her passion.

Milisa has a BCom Accounting degree from the University of Johannesburg as well as an Honors degree in Investment Management.
