Who Do We Fund?
Welcome2Africa International facilitates funding of early-stage social enterprises with great teams and innovative products within the Agriculture and Maritime space in Nigeria (sometimes we go outside of these sectors). We support investments in African startups and SMEs that have the ability to scale up and be sustainable as well as create a positive impact in the communities in which they operate. Our investment ranges from ₦5 million - ₦20 million to support early growth, team consolidation, and market expansion and we are happy to lead funding rounds if we like you.
We approach investments with a mid-term perspective (3-5 years) that allows innovative concepts to develop their business fundamentals and demonstrate investment readiness. Entrepreneurs should be committed full-time and have prior business experience.
