While entrepreneurship is growing rapidly in Africa, entrepreneurs continue to face significant domestic challenges that impede their efforts, including a lack of access to funding, support services, skills training and infrastructure, as well as administrative barriers.

This shared belief, and our common view that each of us has a role to play in turning Africa’s challenges into opportunities, have led to Setup A Startup (SAS) and CABAN Investments Ltd undertaking to partner for startup development and enablement across the continent.

Investment in new businesses carries high risks, as well as the possibility of high rewards. It is highly speculative and potential investors should be aware that no established market exists for the trading of shares in private companies. The success of some spinouts does not in any way predict success for others.

Whilst we take care with our proposals, it will be appreciated that the business plan on which an investment decision is made is often a development of an idea as originally presented, and the business experience and preferences of the potential investors are often significant factors in the final shape of the new company. Before investing in a project, potential investors are strongly advised to take advice from a person authorised under the Financial Services Act who specialises in advising on investments of this kind.
