Africa's largest online deal marketplace - powered by the crowd
this year saw the birthing of AfricaFunders.com then Vendor funding. A rising need was seen in the market as new entrepreneurs failed to fulfill orders for the lack of funding and the tedious bank process. One business deal was funded and then another and the pull began to grow.
…and now the year turned and the growing demand inspired the group to seek other sources to keep the edge trim. A realization that there were people in need of either increasing their portfolio or just in need of creating extra income “the crowd” was then invited to join. From a few family and friend “the crowd” grew to over 300 user and 1000 facebook followers
…this was to be the best yet! The funding portal was now set as a benchmark and continent leader. our user base boomed from just over 300 users to over 1200. Our social front was no different as we attracted more people to our page by the end of 2016 we had 18,000+facebook followers and we had funded over 120 deals worth $3,200,000
we are now in the 2nd 1/4 of 2017 and AfricaFunders.com has reinvented itself as it is a continuously evolving business model. As evidenced by even this new platform we sort to cater for the ever growing demand for our services. As with any change it came with a few wiggles compounded by the global economic downturn. but being strategically located in a stable and growing economy our current deal pipeline has in excess of $15,000,000 ready and waiting on the crowd to fund. We currently have close to 2000 users spanning 43 countries and close to 40,000 facebook followers with deals reaching as far as Cote d’Ivoire.
