Thank You for Supporting Akoin Entrepreneurs

We did it! With your help, we had a successful campaign and created some immediate opportunities for young African entrepreneurs to learn, earn, save and grow. Your gifts are helping us directly fuel our Akoin Ambassador Program -- our first program from our Akoin Foundation that uplifts rising entrepreneurs directly. Donations will fund programs that offer business and skills development -- learning, marketing, community building and earning opportunities for Akoin Ambassadors.

Foundation Programs


Our Foundation focuses on 4 areas of programming designed to support and encourage and activate entrepreneurs, first in Africa, and as we grow, in other rising economies around the world.


Akoin: Blockchain for Social Good

Our flagship technology platform for entrepreneurs is the Akoin Ecosystem. Offering an abundance of digital and real-life tools that create opportunity and inclusion for youth entrepreneurs by allowing consumers to earn, learn, spend and save cryptocurrency right from their smartphone through a suite of blockchain-powered apps.


Funding and Activating Entrepreneurs

We help socially conscious entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground and keep them growing through a suite of lending, funding and activation services. With an emphasis on gender equality and inclusion, we offer unique tools including micro-to-many raffles and Token of Appreciation campaigns to help seed entrepreneurs and get them growing.


Education and Skills Development

The world has gone mobile, and having the right skills and knowledge can mean the difference between the life-or-death of a business. We support the mobile delivery of educational opportunities that fuel entrepreneurship.


Infrastructure for Innovation

It’s easier to incubate a business idea when you have a safe, creative, healthy physical place to plant your roots. We develop physical infrastructure that gives entrepreneurs a place to imagine, envision, learn, and innovate.
