Pangea Trust was registered in 2019 and was initiated by Pangea Accelerator as they identified a big need for a non-profit organization that could focus on building the innovation ecosystem and mobilizing resources from the African Diaspora.
Pangea Trust is today an independent organization and collaborates with organizations such as UN-Habitat, GIZ, UK commission, Strathmore, and many more. We are calling for Ethiopia diaspora and key Stakeholders to work together to directly involve diaspora Ethiopians in improving the lives of the Ethiopian people by raising and supporting impact startups.
Through its support to Pangea Trust, Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) launches a Diaspora fundraising project that seeks to increase deployment of diaspora remittances and networks to provide investment capital to Ethiopia MSMEs and startups. The process requires the creation of the conditions necessary for the safe and seamless movement of capital and other resources from the diaspora to viable MSMEs and promising start-ups in a formal and structured manner.
