The FFI Angel Network

The FFI Angel Network is a network of women in African who are committed to closing the $42 billion funding gap between men and women entrepreneurs in Africa by investing directly in African female founded and/or led businesses.

The FFI Angel Network exists to:
• Increase the number of women who invest and are capital allocators
• Enable women access investment and finance to scale and grow their business
• Provide women who have investable and bankable businesses with access to capital

FFI is building a network of women investors who are critical to Africa’s future because…

Female funders are 2X more likely to invest in startups with one female founder, and more than 3X more likely to invest in a female CEO.

Only 2% of the $725.6 million invested in venture capital (VC) across Africa in 2018 went to women-owned/ led businesses.
