At the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in September 2022, 8B Education Investments announced a $111.6 million initiative to finance African students in global universities.

With this initiative, under the commitment to Accelerate African Access to Global Innovation Ecosystems, 8B has brought together a number of like-minded strategic partners including:

The partnerships have a combined value of $111.6 million that will be deployed over the next three years. The partnerships will transform the lives of more than 1,400 future innovators from the African continent through affordable student financing and reach over 2 million African students in higher education.

8B’s CGI commitment will accelerate African access to global innovation ecosystems and promote diversity and inclusion in global universities and workplaces. It will also build a scalable market-based model for financing world-class human capital development in low-income countries.

As the first fintech solution focused on African students, 8B is committed to enabling African brilliance to have a global impact. We provide tools to enable African students to identify best-fit global universities and level up their applications, access affordable financing and connect with career support for job placement.
