Bridging the gap in access to financial services for African women entrepreneurs and reducing gender inequality; 4. Connecting African women-owned businesses with investment projects as Angel investors; 5. Investing in African women’s economic empowerment and promoting an inclusive economic growth; 6. Unlocking a largely untapped trillion dollar market with potentially attractive risk and return profile.
This strategic initiative will reveal additional insights and highlight key trends in future initiatives. This pilot launch will encompass a much larger set of Women angel entrepreneurs, answering questions like:
Is there a minimum number of angel investors in around to ensure a successful exit?
What are the average revenues of a company to attract VC investment and/or corporate acquisition?
What do different startup CEO demographics mean for investment and company/investor success in African countries?
“This new initiative will increase African women angel investors, who they are, why they want to invest and how they invest, what businesses they invest in, what kinds of returns performance they expect to have and what practices can improve outcomes,” said Dr. Tokie Laotan-Brown, Co-Director TEA Invest (TEA Group Ltd).
