About the Campaign
My name is Omotunde Oni, I currently work as a Socio-economic Analyst. I like to consider myself dreamer and I can only hope my dreams becomes a reality.
Africa is said to have the youngest population out of all the continents. Almost 60% of Africa’s population is under the age of 25, about 37% of African youths live in poverty according to United Nations Development Program (UNDP) sets various indicators in its Human Development Index (HDI) to measure poverty in Africa and all other countries in the world. Using Nigeria as a case study, Nigeria is said to have an estimated population of 206million people with 40% of that population living in poverty.
There are opportunities in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, you just need to know where to look. The bridge between investors is too wide.
Nigeria is a large country compared to many other countries out there so it’s not surprising that investors and investments are scartered all over the country without anyone or an idea to bring them together and procreate businesses. This is what the app will look to achieve. What I am proposing is a financial tool that isn’t available anywhere in the world right now able to bring new businesses, investors amd investments together.
Mr A and Mr B are both Nigerians living in Nigeria, they both wish to start a local food exporting business within Nigeria, if it is estimated that to start the food exportation business it will cost 2 million naira. They both wish to do this business but none of them is able to raise the capital of #2million. Mr A have a seed money of #1.2million while Mr B have #1.4m.
Mr A lives in the northern part of Nigeria while Mr B lives in the southern part of Nigeria, they don’t know each other and have probably never met despite sharing similar ideas on a particular business.
This is where the proposed plan will come in, it will be a financial tool which will look to bring together entrepreneurs who are looking to go into thesame kind of businesses, not only that, the proposed app will feature a platform where investors could take different position to invest in/on an idea or business.
Thanks for going through the message. Cheers!
