VestedWorld

VestedWorld is a chicago-based but Africa-focused investment firm founded in 2014.

VestedWorld is a traditional venture capital fund that is focused on emerging markets. VestedWorld connects qualified investors and experienced advisors to entrepreneurs in emerging markets to ensure the success of our portfolio companies. The company states that its technology unites innovation, insight and capital, bringing together entrepreneurs, advisors and investors committed to economic and social equity, and prosperity for all.



VestedWorld leverages resources such as a streamlined online investment platform, deep knowledge and experience in these markets, and their own capital to create new opportunities for U.S. investors to diversify their portfolios and earn competitive returns while making a transformative impact in developing countries. The company's mission is to catalyze sustainable economic growth by increasing the flow of capital into developing countries.



As an angel investor, Jeffrey Stine principle of VestedWorld has helped fund several early stage businesses in Sub-Saharan Africa, developing an acute understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with early stage investing in emerging markets.



That is according to Jeffrey Stine, principal of the Chicago-based but Africa-focused investment firm VestedWorld, who says "tech-enabled" companies differ from "tech" companies in that they are starting with the problem, identifying the pain points, and only then bringing technology into the picture. Stine's partner Euler Bropleh started VestedWorld in 2014.



The original concept for VestedWorld was a platform-driven approach that connected accredited investors to entrepreneurs seeking investment. However, over time, Bropleh and Stine found that while investors were very excited about the opportunities presented to them, they wanted VestedWorld to play a much larger role.
