How to Raise Capital for Your African Startup in 2023

GetFundedAfrica (GFA) operates a cloud-based technology company focused on building software apps that make it easier for African businesses to grow, tell their stories and to get funded.

We built and rolled out, the first (1st ) African Startup Ecosystem platform that aggregates entrepreneurs, startups & SMES with investors (venture capital & angel investors), corporates, mentors and government.

The African funding landscape has changed vastly from 2022 to 2023, and we believe our role is crucial to continue providing support during this period. Indicators within the first 6months of 2023 show that startups need to become creative in accessing funding & sustaining their businesses via understanding the outlook from investors’ perspective, updated learning and investor readiness. 

Planned “Investor Readiness” has become crucial to successful fund-raising. Data (GFA Research & Feedback from founders that successfully fund-raised) shows startups can utilise up to 70% of their time fund raising without a structured approach, and the enabling tools & resources. This represents a significant challenge as they also need to manage their core business daily.

What GFA has decided to do to solve the “Access to Funding” problem for startups: 

1. Investor Finder App: We have just launched our revolutionary AI-powered Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system designed specifically for startups and emerging businesses. This cutting-edge CRM solution aims to transform how startups engage with investors, streamline fundraising efforts, and maximise the success of entrepreneurial initiatives across the continent.
