More funding required for startups


A senior associate at Business Financial Solutions, Hafeni Hamukoto, has emphasised the need to increase investment in African start-ups that provide unique solutions to challenges.

Some owners of startups say they have experienced difficulties accessing funding and other types of support to realise their dreams. Business Financial Solutions decided to invest in Namibia's first TEA metallurgical lab at Swakopmund, which needed massive funding in 2019.
