Dear Diaspora

Sep 13, 2020

For today’s episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Edith Njage, CEO and co-founder of Arielle for Africa. Edith is a serial social entrepreneur aiming to create 100,000 jobs by 2030 through Arielle for Africa’s programming.

She’s providing entrepreneurs in Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and Uganda with the education, resources and tools they need to start and sustain their businesses. 

During the episode, we discuss:

  • Edith’s educational background and how it informs the work she does to support African entrepreneurs
  • Her program's goal to ensure each entrepreneur can create at least 5 jobs
  • Her thoughts on only why only 6% of venture capital investments in Kenya go to Black Kenyan founders
  • How Africans in the Diaspora can participate and play a more active role in supporting entrepreneurs
