    Mansa Capital is a health care private equity investment firm specializing in high growth companies in the health care services and health care technology sectors. Mansa focuses on companies as they prepare for expansion, acquisition, privatization or IPO. Mansa Capital draws its name from the medieval-era Moorish title 'mansa' meaning 'king of kings' or 'emperor.' The firm's investments range from $5 million to $10 million, primarily in companies with up to $150 million in enterprise value. Mansa's current portfolio includes Independent Living Systems, a long term care management company based in Miami, and E4 Health, a wellness company based in Dallas. Mansa was founded in 2003 by its Managing Partner and CIO Ruben J. King-Shaw Jr., a dual citizen of the United States of America and the Republic of Panama.
