Project objectives

Strategic : Support the national institutions of the countries of origin in the development of new strategies for diasporas

 

Meeting DiafrikInvest

The project is carried out in consultation and coordination with national institutions. It aims to identify high potentials and entrepreneurs from the diasporas in Europe. Authorities and business networks in Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia will thus have a qualified base of talents, entrepreneurs and investors to target. Consultations on economic attractiveness policies and support schemes for entrepreneurship must give rise to new pro-diaspora strategies. Three offers of services for the diaspora will thus be co-constructed in order to enhance the economic attractiveness of Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia.

 

Microeconomic : Strengthening the capacity of both local and diaspora entrepreneurs

 

Group photo DiafrikInvestEntrepreneurs from the diaspora benefit from personalised support on the investment framework and opportunities to get involved in the development of the countries of origin. While local entrepreneurs benefit from MasterClass and Mentoring by high potentials and diaspora entrepreneurs. Prospecting trips and business forums are also organised.

 

 

 

 

Financial : Connecting entrepreneurs and investors to facilitate productive investment through innovative instruments

 

Through the networking of private investors (business angels) from the diaspora and investors from the countries of origin, the project creates a dynamic of co-investment. The Investment Academy also helps to connect entrepreneurs and investors. Eventually, the 20 best responsible projects will be promoted in investment research via a crowdfunding platform.
