The EURAFRI.COM Project

Statusupdate 2019-07-24

We are very proud to announce that the process of finalizing the base setup of our organization has made huge steps forward.

a 40000 € value for a great start!

We want to say thank you to the IT specialists of http://CTS-Solutions.at for their hard work on our website, the membership management software and our new forum. Furthermore these cool guys have setup an SAML Single Sign On solution. Based on this setup and the 5 servers we received and are able to use for free we received a value of around 40.000 € to have a great start. Let us say thank you and hopefully we will find more entrepreneurs and companies joining our project as donors. Donations already work https://eurafri.com/contactanddonate/#contact . We build a great networking opportunitiy for European and African members to establish more business, invest in startups, make money, or find a job within these startups and more. It is a huge chance for members of both continents! Talking to people, growing the own business network is the key to success! EURAFRI will do its best to become the leading networking platform between Eurpe and Africa!

Beta test of Membership and Forum

We placed the links to membership registration https://mm.eurafri.com/ and the forum https://forum.eurafri.com/ on the website. Please note that registration is already possible and all early birds will have their cheap beta membership as long as their membership is active. Access to the forum requires membership and there is no public area in the forum. At the moment we are working hard on setting up the forums, categories and basics. Please send bug reports to support@eurafri.com.

Team page updated

Our team page already was updated https://eurafri.com/contactanddonate/ and we are sure, that we will fill the volunteer region and country manager entries soon. We decided to start in Ghana, Uganda, Zambia and Namibia, but applications from other countries are very welcome too. Feel free to contact us to discuss interesting ideas.

Vacancies will be posted soon

We will place a blog entry regarding to open job vacancies soon. Even we start with volunteers everywhere, this is a great chance for people from different countries to be successful with us and our members.

Meet-Me events

We will start with regional “Meet-Me” events probably in October or November. These recurring events will bring people together face-to-face. After these local “Meet-Me” events are setup we will add international “Meet-Me” events for our members. Networking without borders is the key to success for members from all areas! Entry to these events is free of charge for all EURAFRI members and EURAFRI will handle these events with membership fee and donations only. It will not be possible to attend the event for Non-Members.

No fees if you do business

EURAFRI is a non profit organization and is financed by membership fees and donations only. All business you create out of networking with other EURAFRI members is your business and EURAFRI will not charge a fee or commission in regards to this business. Even more, all members of EURAFRI should help other members to create more business. As we all know this is another key to more success for all members.
