Tekedia Capital Syndicate invites new members as it begins next investment cycle in October 2023

Tekedia Capital Syndicate, an African-focused investment syndicate, is inviting new members, as it begins the next investment cycle in October 2023.

Through Tekedia Capital Syndicate, hundreds of global citizens, Africans in diasporas and homelands, companies, investment clubs, angel clubs, etc., have invested in some of the leading startups in Africa and beyond.

Some of these companies have later joined Y Combinator and Techstars as well as raised millions of US dollars in follow-up funds.

The Syndicate invests in mainly technology-anchored companies and is sector-agnostic which means those companies could be operating in any industry, including finance, real estate, education, health, logistics, manufacturing, etc.

In the next cycle which will open in early October, ten companies will be participating, and these companies cover AI, cybersecurity, informal retail B2B, fintech, SaaS, etc., with a geographical spread which includes Guinea, Sweden, the US, Canada, Nigeria, and the UK.

To become a member of the Syndicate, a membership fee of US$1,000 or N550,000 naira is required. This payment covers four cycles; we typically do two cycles per year.

To join, click here, and register, via any of the payment options, including a local Naira bank account, Stripe, PayPal, and Flutterwave in your preferred currency. If you join our Syndicate, you will have access to member-exclusive demo days and investment opportunities.
