Crowdfunding in Africa is in its infancy stage of development. Just like in the U.S., donation and reward-based crowdfunding has been trying to take hold in the market for the last several years. That said, equity crowdfunding is springing around since 2015/16 with its potential being recognized by governments and the development/donor community including ours (https://igniteinvestment.com/) launched in September 2022.
With over 80% of African businesses being Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) facing a critical lack of access to finance because of collateralized debt financing, the potential for crowdfunding is estimated to reach over 2 Billion in sub-Sahara Africa by just 2025. I also know that Wefunder and Republic have been eyeing around the African equity crowdfunding market. In fact, I actually participated in one of Republic's Twitter spaces event talking about how African company fundraised on their platform.
I would just add, with a lack of a good regulatory framework in almost all except a couple of countries, equity crowdfunding in Africa has been lagging behind the world. However, its potential and recognition is growing rapidly.
