Community-Based Venture Capital Model
A community-based VC model designed to enable local angel investors to participate in the transformation of African innovations. Our community consists of members from all walks of life.
Successful professionals looking for new ways to invest their disposable income, domain-knowledge experts seeking to become owners, experienced and novice angel investors looking for an avenue to participate in startup investing.
Others are entrepreneurs themselves who have received a windfall from previous ventures and now want to plough some of that wealth back into a new business. All these members have a unifying factor: their willingness to take risks with the potential to earn significant returns.
A community-based venture capital model presents several benefits such as localised expertise, empowerment of African entrepreneurs, network-sharing, cultivation of meaningful relationships with like-minded individuals, job creation and social impact.
It plays a pivotal role in nurturing African innovation, driving economic growth while building resilient and prosperous communities. By connecting our clients with each other and fostering collaborative relationships, we are cultivating a supportive ecosystem that will mutually benefit all stakeholders.
