GetFundedAfrica Ventures announces opening of funding application portal to startups in Africa
24th August 2020 – GetFundedAfrica Ventures, a social venture on a mission to uplift people and economies in Africa through entrepreneurship, is pleased to announce that it has started accepting applications for equity capital funding from startups across Africa.
Start-ups in pre-seed and seed stages of fundraising can apply for funding through the dedicated application page on GetFundedAfrica’s website.
There are lots of challenges in Africa and GetFundedAfrica believes it can contribute to the eradication of poverty in Africa by investing in the Continent’s most promising ideas and companies — helping them grow, create jobs and solve Africa’s greatest challenges.
Debo Omololu, Co-Founder of GetFundedAfrica Ventures said, “We believe that by investing and nurturing ideas from African entrepreneurs, we can uplift people and economies in Africa through entrepreneurship. At GetFundedAfrica, we see opportunities to invest in startups that digitize existing value chains and we are excited to open our portal to startups seeking equity investments”.
“We have developed a rolling fund model that gives us the flexibility to raise funds and invest in several African startups. GetFundedAfrica’s goal is to develop a “year-round accelerator” backed with funding, rather than a “cohort based” model. We believe this is a model that will drive innovation in Africa and encourage more limited partners to join the GetFundedAfrica network.”Tunji Oke, GetFundedAfrica’s Co-Founder & Director of Innovation & Partnerships said,
GetFundedAfrica Ventures expects to invest in African startups in the pre-seed and seed stages (typical investment sizes between $10,000 to $50,000) or organize syndicated funding rounds for investments of up to $500,000.
