Cayman island based LoftyInc Capital Management has announced the launch of a new $25m Afropreneur Fund II which focuses on early stage Africa-facing enterprises that leverage technologies to create social impact and tackle big problems.

The launch was announced at Africa Diaspora Network’s Annual Investment Symposium, ADIS 2017 held in Silicon Valley, California.

The key goal of the  Afropreneur Funds is to leverage these investments for social impact, contributing as much to social change and impact, as to the bottom-line- lifting millions out of poverty, illiteracy, sickness and unemployment.
