SFAN has raised $250,000 in pre-seed funding. The company is focused on talent development throughout the continent through the Readyforwork.africa career accelerator. An analysis of the industry shows that it takes university graduates six years to land their first jobs. On the demand side, employers are finding it hard to discover early career professionals with the skills their companies require.
According to the World Bank, if we quantify the challenges in monetary terms, they are looking at a $130 billion market opportunity. SFAN will introduce fresh perspectives through their digital services accelerator that equips entry-level job seekers looking for job readiness skills that help employers discover the brightest talent in the continent.
SFAN has always pushed the boundaries in its operations over the past seven years. The funding came from the Ghanaian King Solomon’s Group.
