AfroAvenue is pleased to announce the launch of its app for its award-winning platform AfroAvenue.com.
Founder & CEO Caroline Wilson, the brainchild behind AfroAvenue.com created the website and app after securing first-round funding of over $1 million from investors. Located in Tech City in London and with almost 100,000 followers across social media and a growing member base, AfroAvenue.com has come a long way.
AfroAvenue.com is free to join and is a global urban social media e-commerce platform, which allows its users to connect, share, buy, sell, and discover with other members of its global community.
AfroAvenue.com comes at a time when diversity in tech is much needed, as so few ethnic minorities hold leadership positions in technology companies. In the US, the figure is 17% whilst in the UK the share is significantly lower at 2.6% based on a report by ColorInTech. Caroline has defied incredible odds to get AfroAvenue.com to where it is today.
Only 34% of women of color globally have been able to raise over $1 million in venture funding since 2009.
Caroline Wilson, Founder & CEO of AfroAvenue says: “We are looking forward to growing further in 2020 after a successful soft launch last year. We have already rolled out the full site to the USA after the success of our soft launch in the UK. I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to all of the members of the AfroAvenue community for their continued support of AfroAvenue.com.”
AfroAvenue.com is the must-have award-winning digital destination for the urban community to connect, share, buy, sell, and discover.
