Nia Crowdfund is an equity crowdfunding platform that connects individual and institutional investors to exceptional African businesses. The businesses that raise on Nia are positively contributing to local community development and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Nia helps to raise between £100,000 and £1,000,000 for SMEs and start-ups across the continent, where there are significant capital gaps. Nia’s goal is to help fill the $140 billion dollar SME financing gap in Africa, which is currently growing due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nia’s platform takes down the barriers to investing in Africa by making impact investing on the continent easier, cost-effective, and transparent for clients who are looking to do well by doing good.
