Zambia Business Angels Network

Value Proposition

Continuously increase the pool of angel investors who support and fund promising entrepreneurs in Zambia

Who We Are

We are Zambia’s first business angels network, established to fill a major gap in the entrepreneurship ecosystem and significantly increase the number of enterprises that can attract impact investment.

ZBAN is a positive contributor to the impact investment ecosystem supporting early-stage enterprises with a developed scalable model for starting and growing a local angel investment network.

ZBAN is a ‘member-led’ network of Business Angels – private individuals who invest their personal capital (finances, time, experience, contacts) in helping early-stage ventures to grow.

Our Mission:

To bring together individual capital, connections and mentorship for start-ups and early-stage enterprises.

Our Vision

The development and implementation of effective mechanisms for the sustained growth and contribution of SMEs to Africa’s economic development.

Why Zambia?

Zambia is endowed with abundant natural resources including 752,00 square kilometres of land. An estimated 42 million hectares of the country’s land mass is arable with less than 7% (2.8 million hectares) cultivated annually by predominantly smallholder farmers. Zambia has a significant resource for irrigation and is ideally located to serve as a regional production, trade and enterprise hub building on its unrivalled agrarian potential. Zambia is surrounded by eight countries and is a member of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area offering access to a market of over three hundred million people.
