Announcing FirstCheck Africa
Women are under-represented in African tech. We’re on a mission to fix that.
Through FirstCheck Africa, our female-focused angel fund, Eloho Omame (Managing Director, Endeavor Nigeria) and Odunayo Eweniyi (Co-founder & COO, PiggyVest) are investing in women in African tech.
Our mission is to advance equity, capital and leadership for a generation of women in Africa through technology & entrepreneurship.
In 2021, FirstCheck Africa plans to invest up to $25,000 each, “ridiculously early”, in women in Africa with bold, entrepreneurial ideas.
We’re also developing the middle tier of female angel investors, by building a community of millennials and mid-career women that want to learn about tech and angel investing and put their dollars — small or large — behind ventured-backed technology companies in Africa.
We’re looking for:
- Audacious women in tech that are determined to launch their first technology-enabled startups; and
- Mission-aligned partners that see the overlooked potential of Africa’s women-led startups.
