Afrinection is Africa’s first integrated professional online networking, jobs, marketing and investment identification platform. It was created in September 2016 due to a gap in the African business community with regards to diaspora and on-continent. The lack of a dedicated platform enabling African professionals focusing on African business development, African entrepreneurs and start-ups, and job seekers to connect proved to be a ripe opportunity for advancement. Afrinection speaks to prospective investors and employers, creating a future-focused funnel of African talent. There are at least 5 very good reasons why you should join our rapidly growing network.
1. Afrinection: Africa’s New Ecosystem
Our direct communication tool is quick and easy to use as it allows individuals to send chat messages in real-time and connect with company profiles that they follow. Similarly, registered companies and organizations have the ability to reach out to potential employees in order to open communication lines.
Afrinection is open to Africans in the diaspora and on the continent, as well as companies and professionals who focus on African business opportunities. The key focus of Afrinection is on global African citizens. Afrinection provides a niche community whereby employers pursuing African talent have the opportunity to navigate through countries and industries to find prospective candidates for their job openings. The vision of Afrinection is to develop a Go-To platform creating meaningful connections that deliver. As stated by founder, Kifle, Afrinection was born out the need for, “fellow Africans from across the globe to take collective responsibility and to establish meaningful connections among each other, furthering the success of African-owned ventures and affording bright African professionals the opportunity at gainful employment in their industries of interest”.
