Collaboration with MyAfricanStartup on the Top 100 African Startups to Invest In In 2017:
“East Africa-focused investment platform LelapaFund has pivoted its business model, moving away from equity crowdfunding towards a new closed syndication-style platform, LelapaFLOW, enabling funds and angels to co-invest.”
“We are excited about developing a micro-equity finance model that is built to the needs of African SMEs simply because no capital markets infrastructure has ever done that successfully. African stock exchanges, including alternative exchanges, have mostly failed in channeling equity finance to small and medium-sized enterprises.”
“We are really talking about patient capital, that is not speculative at all, it’s really development capital”
