The Calulo Group
The Calulo Group is a unique group of companies incorporating multiple disciplines. In essence, we are a BBBEE investment partner focused primarily in the energy sector, but in practise the group has evolved to become so much more. We have developed a proactive and complimentary range of business services and entities which benefit our stakeholders, investee companies, strategic partners and the industry as a whole.
This has evolved us from a BBBEE investment company into an investment incubator, growing our investments through active participation, marketing and adding value wherever the opportunities arise. We promote active involvement and skills transference between all companies within our portfolio, driving entrepreneurial development and thinking, removing silos and looking for new opportunities throughout our sector.
Calulo is a learning institution and as our portfolio develops, so will our capabilities and services, driving our investments to exceptional performance through relationships, collaboration and stability.
