Non profit foundation promoting Angel Investing in Africa


African Business Angel Network (ABAN) is a pan African non-profit association founded to support the development of early stage investor networks across the continent and to get many more (early stage) investors excited about the opportunities in Africa.

ABAN seeks to promote a culture of Angel investing across Africa. There are networks emerging across the continent, but there is yet a conversation in place that connects them. There is a sincere need to collect/develop best practices and to make this knowledge available. To create a resource and contact point for promoting new networks and/or supporting other stakeholders looking to get involved in building the ecosystem. Also to engage private sector investors and to offer some guidance on investing into African borne innovations. In turn, ABAN seeks to further build the industry and improve the climate for startup entrepreneurs.

ABAN began as a consortium of independent investor networks including the Lagos Angels Network (LAN), Cameroon Angel Network (CAN), Ghana Angel Network (GAIN), Venture Capital for Africa (VC4Africa), Silicon Cape and supported by the European Business Angel Network (EBAN), the LIONS Africa Partnership and DEMO Africa. In the interest to connect these African networks, support new investors and new networks, to maximize their impact and to connect African investors to their global counterparts, the need was established to form a pan-African association of angel investor networks and other early stage investors: ABAN.

    My name is Castro Shanobe from Lusaka, Zambia, i am founder of Newtech, an innovative social enterprise that was setup to offer solutions to the problems solid waste management and to develop, promote and implement innovations that preserve, protect our environment and natural resources

    Our innovation centers on using waste plastic in producing environmentally friendly, durable and cheaper construction materials and furniture. we have been researching on this innovation for over 4 years now and have manually produced a series of products such as paving stones, tiles, poles (fencing and construction).

    From our research findings, we are able to produce alot more products with the correct equipment

    i would be delighted if you could give me an opportunity to share with you our innovation (the next big thing in Zambia today)

    it is a project that has potential to directly empower over 500 people living in poverty anywhere it is set up, with thousands of third party beneficiaries.

    most importantly it has the potential to preserve our environment as an alternative for wood, and other construction materials

    i will be grateful if you could advise how i can engage your organisation for maximum benefit for both your cause and our social enterprise.

    i look forward to your feedback
    best regard

    I am Musyoki Muli, a publisher by profession and founder of Spear Sharp Education in Kenya, publishing children’s and revision books.
    There are no equity investors to help us expand our family business and I would be glad if I got leads from anyone/anywhere ready to dilute our shareholding as the country begins to implement a new curriculum late this year. There is enough money in publishing books for the new curriculum as well as digitizing the content and monetizing the same across various media.
