We run programmes that position the diaspora as protagonists in the continent’s advancement.
We aim to democratize access to finance and create greater independence from foreign aid, while empowering more indigenous, culturally-informed development solutions.
SECTOR SPECIFIC BUSINESS TRAINING WORKSHOPS AND RESOURCES TAILOR-MADE FOR THE DIASPORA
Our events include Facebook Live sessions and masterclasses featuring successful diaspora entrepreneurs, as well as "how to" business toolkits.
Our accelerator incubates early stage diaspora businesses, providing them with access to finance, mentoring and the networks needed to scale.
THE REMITFUND FELLOWSHIP SCHEME
We work with innovation hubs on the continent to help African entrepreneurs develop their start-ups. We also partner with Black Employee Networks in leading consulting and professional service firms to enable diaspora professionals to help our Fellows become investment ready.
DIASPORA INVESTMENT PLATFORM
We’re piloting an investment platform that enables the diaspora to invest in African and diaspora-led businesses through a mix of donation-based crowdfunding and crowdinvesting. The platform will also facilitate investment in diaspora bonds and other financial instruments.
