The story of AfricaChallenges begins in 2018 when a group of young, dynamic African and Afro-descendant executives decide to come together to form a professional and financial network for the Empowerment of the community.
From its meetings was born AfricaChallenges, a non-profit organization that was formed in a private club.

Through its first actions, AfricaChallenges demonstrates that: although our community is cautious of private investment, it is possible, and accessible to all when it is done collectively.
“We realize that innovative ideas are born everywhere and deserve to be accompanied. Some sometimes need a little help (a little funding, the right skills, the right network) for the project to materialize or develop.

AfricaChallenges is a network of African and Afro-descendant talents that acts in a collective dynamic of sharing skills, networks, business opportunities and investments.

“We aim to be a space where the skills that are useful to others are also turned to our community because we are all African and afro descendants. ”

“We help each other, we do what we can to help ourselves, we want to learn from one another and others”.

The AfricaChallenges network is also access to skills, advice, listening and feedback.
“We are a young network, we give ourselves time to grow and develop relationships of lasting trust”


Objectives of the evening

Undertaking in one’s country of residence is not easy but to undertake in one’s country of origin can appear a very binding mission even impossible.
But beyond the personal will to undertake, this question is today more than ever at the heart of the future of Africa and its world population.

But how to create a business in the country? Sometimes we do not know where to start … what
network on the spot? which Mindset? what constraints on the ground?
Others have already taken the plunge and wish to develop their Business … But in which country?

What regulation?

The AfricaChallenges Club invites around the table actors and “Role-Model” who will share the keys to their success as well as the various levers that are useful for launching and developing a business with positive impact in Africa.


Ricardo KANIAMA is an example of SUCCESS for young people from Africa and around the world. Having survived on less than $ 15 a month until he was 28, he started to become a street vendor. Passionate about studies of the secrets of SUCCESS, he experienced an extraordinary rise and became a millionaire at 35 thanks to his investments in
the pharmaceutical industry. He also owns several hospitals.
He humbly wants to share his personal feedback on the MINDSET of the entrepreneur in Africa.

Matthieu REMONNAY, born in Rwanda and after studying International Relations – Political Science in Lyon 3, Matthieu was entrusted with the communication, political and economic department of the Rwandan Embassy in Paris. On this occasion, he met entrepreneurs who had the same problems to start in Africa: Little information, little support, little network. It has therefore created the platform, a network that brings together and
relationship active professionals in Africa. Through his consulting activity, he also helps entrepreneurs to settle and develop their business in the country.

About The Author

CEO AfrikaTech

Comme beaucoup de personnes j’ai connu l’Afrique à travers des stéréotypes : l’Afrique est pauvre, il y a la guerre, famine… Je suis devenu entrepreneur pour briser ces clichés et participer à la construction du continent. J’ai lancé plusieurs entreprises dont Kareea (Formation et développement web), Tutorys (Plate-forme de e-learning), AfrikanFunding (Plate-forme de crowdfunding). Après un échec sur ma startup Tutorys, à cause d’une mauvaise exécution Business, un manque de réseau, pas de mentor, je suis parti 6 mois en immersion dans l’écosystème Tech au Sénégal. J’ai rencontré de nombreux entrepreneurs passionnés, talentueux et déterminés. A mon retour sur Paris je décide de raconter leur histoire en créant le média AfrikaTech. L'objectif est de soutenir les entrepreneurs qui se battent quotidiennement en Afrique en leur offrant la visibilité, les connaissances, le réseautage et les capitaux nécessaires pour réussir. L'Afrique de demain se construit aujourd'hui ensemble. Rejoignez-nous ! LinkedIn:
