Risk warning

Investing in early stage businesses and startups can be very rewarding but comes with its risks and challenges. These risks include dilution, illiquidity, loss of investment and rarity of dividends which is why investment should only occur as part of a diversified portfolio. Managing Africa is targeted specifically at sophisticated Investors who are sufficiently aware of these risks and make informed decisions. As an Investor, you will only be able to invest via Managing Africa once you have passed our application process and registered on our platform.

Pitches by Entrepreneurs for investment are not offers to the general public. Only registered members of Managing Africa can invest into Managing Africa and mandate Managing Africa to invest that money into the particular Entrepreneur; based on information provided in the pitches by the Entrepreneurs concerned. Managing Africa takes no responsibility for this information or any recommendations or opinions expressed by the Entrepreneurs or Investors.
