  • No fees if you do business. EURAFRI is a non profit organization and is financed by membership fees and donations only.

Helping woman into entrepreneurship and IT / IoT business

Karl, one of the founders of EURAFRI always had a high percentage woman in his teams in nearly all countries he worked. EURAFRI will try to help woman to move into the IT/IoT business and entrepreneurship. “I would love to see a lot of woman as ambassadors and region managers too! My experience with woman in leading roles always was great! I hope we receive applications from African woman to join EURAFRI.” - Karl said in an interview for a German language magazine.

Timeline

Actually EURAFRI is finalizing the and offers cheap test accounts to interested entrepreneurs and companies. All early birds will have this price for the accounts life-time. They decided that there will be no free memberships to avoid having internet trolls and other people EURAFRI do not want to have on their members forum. Nobody of the core team has the time or is willing to clean out spam, or troll postings and invest time in things not helping the project moving forward.

To give everybody a chance to be part of the EURAFRI project they added a special free membership option for people contacting them and proof, they are real and willing to work hard for their personal success. This option is open to all IT/IoT people, entrepreneurs and companies during the EURAFRI project start. Furthermore ambassadors and region managers (volunteer) do not pay membership. This is limited to the opening time of EURAFRI and the core team decides on an application by application basis. There is no entitlement for free membership.

Within the next 2-3 month they will add African members and later EURAFRI will invite investors and business partners from Europe. Eventually European investors and business partners will find very interesting postings from African entrepreneurs, companies and IT/IoT people and a huge story will start off.

EURAFRI is not interested in high volume, low quality content within the member forum. They want their community to build up with high quality opportunities and contacts.
