AfriFindInvest (AFI) is an advisory boutique enabling Africa’s early-stage tech founders to raise the capital they need to grow.

“Our commitment is to helping more founders raise more capital, more efficiently” Gbenga Odimayo, AFI Director.

City Lights

Africa is one of the least forgiving fundraising environments. All too often, a lack of insider knowledge and right networks prevent founders from raising the capital their companies deserve.

Based between Nairobi and London, AFI bridges Africa’s challenging investment gaps, ensuring early-stage startups across the continent have the opportunity to scale.
