Want to invest in African entrepreneurs?

Entrepreneurs are a key driver in Africa’s economic development. An increasing body of research argues that entrepreneurs, and their small to medium size enterprises, hold great potential for the continent’s continued advancement. Entrepreneurs are vital to building a healthy and stable society. They help to create an important middle class and are an invaluable source of jobs, tax revenue, foreign currency and countless tertiary benefits. What can you do?

Invest!

With MyC4.com it is possible to invest directly in African entrepreneurs. The website is an online marketplace where you can search projects by country. Find the entrepreneur you think has the best business potential and make a bid. This is when the fun part begins and you see the market forces take control. As MyC4.com grows as a community you will see more and more investors competing for the same loans. This bidding dynamic serves to drive down the interest rates so make sure your bid is competitive 🙂 I like this approach because it puts the power into the hands of the entrepreneur. They choose the best bid they need to grow their business and at the end of the day this is what it is all about!

MyC4.com was founded by Tim Vang and Mads Kjaer. See an interview I did with Mads on their one year anniversary. This interview was taken with the Flip Video.
