Africa’s crowdfunding context: starting up startups the African way
Description
In Africa, crowdfunding could still be considered being in its beta phase but has the potential to evolve the startup financing culture of the continent. It’s also being adapted to create a new and interesting chapter for platforms to fit Africa’s unique environment. There are as many as three crowdsourcing sites in South Africa namely StartMe, FundFind and the most recent ThundaFund to provide micro financing platforms. In Nigeria there’s StartCrunch while Kenya has M-Changa. In Ghana there is SlizeBiz that focuses on angel investments as well as obtaining micro finances through the general population.
