The Gambia Angel Investors Network (GAIN) is a “not for profit” entity set up for the purpose of organizing seed funders (“Business Angels”) to invest in Gambian businesses. GAIN facilitates the introduction of Gambian entrepreneurs to potential investors through presentations and other mechanisms. It consists of individual angel investors interested in financing privately held companies or ventures typically in an early stage of development. GAIN is an association of committed members that provide not only early-stage seed funding but also mentoring for start-up entrepreneurs. GAIN was established through an ongoing project supported by the International Trade Centre (ITC) with operational partners GIEPA, GCCI and YEP helping to incubate the network.
