Angel investors give agri-preneurs wings to take off

Alternative finance in the form of angel investors is providing important seed money to jumpstart agri-preneurs and push them to profitability.

Seeking not just to transform agriculture but also to empower women in Africa, Victus Global Capita Ltd. (VGC) was founded in 2016 by two African-born women, Bo Masole and Zee de Gersigny. VGC seeks to ease the difficulties African women entrepreneurs face in accessing capital by investing in women-led or 50% or more women-owned businesses.
