LEVERAGING THE CREATIVE TALENTS AND ENTREPRENEURIAL DRIVES OF THE YOUTHS IN AFRICA IS OUR WAY OF INVADING THE PRESENT WITH THE FUTURE
Changing the narratives of responsible impact investing in Africa
EFFECT Africa facilitates the growth of African Treasures as represented by talented young people in Africa who will later become recognized as National Treasures within their geographical boundaries. We have identified an untapped investment opportunity, investing in today’s future entrepreneurs and competitive talents whom we refer to as Associates.
EFFECT Africa came into existence on the conviction that all young men and women who possess exceptional abilities for innovation and wealth creation with demonstrated desires but lack financial resources should be given a hand for attaining local/global competitiveness and dynamic positioning in Africa.
We focus on seed fundraising and pre-financing for full-time students/associates possessing natural gifts and abilities but facing an unfavourable financial situation or low-income family status. The diversity of beneficiaries will be promoted by spreading catchments from different countries across Africa using pre-established criteria. In most cases, young talents are selected for funding by particular sponsors within a well-defined skill or talent requirement.
For selected candidates/associates in full-time academic or specialized programs, contrary to traditional banks approach, the sponsor will not ask for complete reimbursement of the money with an interest rate, but obtain the student’s personal commitment for differed professional work or help as a time counterpart during a certain period of their career, like in between the 5th and 10th year of his/her professional activity.
The Investment Champions are rare breeds of seasoned investors and accelerators who have acquired considerable experience and knowledge about impact investing in the African context. They provide a coalition of excellence to help guide EFFECT Africa on the path to reaching its goals.
