The African continent is riddled with several negative ``single stories`` as a famous African author puts it. Some of these views are true but one-sided and include high rates of unemployment, ethnic divisions and lack of access to opportunities. Many feel hopeless, but the resilience and enterprising spirit of Africans have always been remarkable. This is what this platform represents.
Grow My Hustle was launched in 2017 from a need to develop alternative financing for Creatives, Startups and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), and generally anyone with a project they would like to benefit from.
Our aim is to create a platform where everyone can have the opportunity to pursue their goals, dreams and ambitions without needing permission from traditional sources of funding.
In the various African communities, members of the society come together to raise funds and support for anyone in need.
Crowdfunding has always been in the DNA of Africans and now we are bringing it onto the digital platform.
