GoBig Finance and Mentorship Hub
Go Big Finance and Mentorship Hub is a platform (on mobile app and web) that enables local, pre-vetted entrepreneurs to meet local investors for affordable and accessible capital and connect with local mentors for free skills through mentorship. GoBigHub supports local micro enterprises to go big with the belief that this will lead to more jobs, better livelihoods, and reduced poverty across Africa. The five year goal of GoBigHub is to be in at least 1,000 African towns across Africa, connecting local micro entrepreneurs to local micro investors and local mentors.
