South African web and mobile development agency We Are Monsters will enter a partnership with Silvertree Internet Holdings, a pan-African tech investment firm which recently boasted investments totalling R20-million made within the first seven months of 2015.

Based in Cape Town, Silvertree incubates and invests into ventures, and focuses on execution of simple, proven business models.

We Are Monsters will secure growth capital and join Silvertree’s portfolio that includes notable ecommerce sites Faithful to Nature, Click n Compare and WineCo.

In a press release, the firm noted that its portfolio has enjoyed month-on-month revenue growth of over 10%, and as much as 40% monthly for some ventures.

“This partnership with Silvertree gives us a chance to really showcase our ability. To create not just great websites and apps, but also top-class digital marketing.”
