Uprise.Africa has launched an equity crowdfunding platform to promote SME development in South Africa.
The first campaign, Storied by Jacana Media, aims to raise R3-million within 90 days to fund its output over a three-year start-up period.
Storied aims to promote African fiction by developing emerging talent, publishing and promoting creative writing, running career development programmes for writers and developing key skills across the publishing supply chain.
Several startups have successfully completed the Uprise.Africa onboarding process and will soon be added to the public platform.
Uprise.Africa offers a simplistic investment process with a minimum requirement of FICA compliance by the investor. Both novice and experienced investors are encouraged to develop their investment portfolio by registering with Uprise.Africa.
