CcHUB is thrilled to announce that they have closed the first round of investments for the CcHUB Syndicate. Through the investment vehicle, we have invested in 3 exciting technology companies. These companies, with valuations north of $17.5m are focused on building critical digital infrastructure to be deployed across Africa and they are geared to be some of the hottest tech companies in 2021.
Our first investment round lasted six weeks and we received mind-blowing investor feedback. Since the launch in December, more than 400 Investors signed-up to the syndicate, and over 30 investors have completed the KYC process and are committed to investing in the future of the African Innovation and Technology ecosystem. Post-closing this round, we would deploy $267,500 in bridge financing into these companies to enable them to achieve critical milestones ahead of their next funding cycle.
