VENTURE CAPITAL FOR AFRICA (VC4AFRICA) NAMES ECAMPUS THE MOST PROMISING ENTREPRENEURIAL VENTURE IN AFRICA (ECAMPUS WINS THE VC4AFRICA SEPTEMBER COHORT IN 2013)
In September, 2013, ten entrepreneurs across Africa were selected to benefit from three months of business development support and introductions to VC4Africa investor network, the largest network of African SME focused investors. eCampus after 3 months of training and business development won the VC4Africa (Venture Capital for Africa) September Cohort.
The founder of eCampus took maximum advantage of the coaching and mentoring that was offered during the September Cohort and eCampus attracted and secured the appropriate investment from within the VC4Africa investor community. Winning the venture gave eCampus the opportunity to secure funding to roll out the concept of eCampus across Africa.
eCampus is an online teaching and learning platform with social networking options that allows users (teachers & students) to interact and compare test scores. It also provides free access to interactive examinable academic contents (past questions, podcast, video, ebooks, games & publications) from all Examination Councils across Africa.
eCampus is positioned to address the problems of falling exams-pass rates, high dropout rates, inadequate test preps, limited access to educational materials, high teacher to students ratios, lack of motivation to teach & learn and unemployment.
Our Vision and mission is to innovate, transform, and change how teaching and learning is delivered in Africa, by giving people the power to self learn by putting interactive multimedia rich academic content at the fingertips of everyone everywhere in Africa, especially students and teachers, to facilitate higher students pass rates in final exams and reduce school dropout rates across Africa By far, eCampus is the only true and purely educational social network platform for Africa that is locally relevant, continentally scalable and globally trendy, like LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+
