The African Fintech Summit took place on April 12 and featured many notable speakers. Eunice Ajim moderated a panel on “Venture Investment Trends in Enabling Sustainable Fintech Development.” Ajim is a tech entrepreneur and investor who is Cameroonian-American and has experience in everything from start-up funding and management to running a tech firm with over $10 million in revenue. She also advises and invests in African tech firms as an angel investor.
TANTV reporter Karesha had the opportunity to speak with Eunice Ajim at the summit, about her successful life as a CEO. Ajim mentioned that after attending school she got a job in the corporate world but that world didn’t fit her “I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart so I quit that job and opened two tech companies here in the united states.” said Ajim. Even though one of Ajim’s businesses shut down the other one is successful and thriving. Ajim is a founding partner of Ajim Capital, an early-stage fund and community of angel investors that offers financing to African entrepreneurs from Pre-seed to Seed with typical check sizes ranging from $25K to $150K. She launched “Ajim Capital” with the intention to invest in a lot of start-up African tech companies because “I realize that there is a huge opportunity in Africa but not alot of funding going to African founders so I decided to launch Ajim capital to breach that gap,” said Ajim.
