From Africa to the World

Whether our teams are building to solve problems in their local communities, or are scaling across major cities in their own countries, or if they perhaps have conquered their countries and are crossing into regional markets and beyond the continent, we get to see them early. And we move quickly.


Equipping you to build a solid thesis and methodology in evaluating and investing into high-growth tech deals.

The Noir Diaspora Angel Academy is an intentional & systematic virtual program designed to help African executives and high net worth individuals within the continent and in the diaspora to evaluate, structure and assess deals, against their personal or corporate thesis that matches their short or long term investment strategy.
