Our Mission

LinkedAfrica.com is a pan-African professional social network. As of December 2012 LinkedAfrica.com has 450,000 registered users and it is the largest Africa focused professional social network. LinkedAfrica’s ambition is to open up and release the professional energies of Africans and put human resources at the heart of Africa’s social and economic development. LinkedAfrica wants to build a model in which African professionals are no longer job seekers but professional service providers who build their online professional identity, certify and improve their hard and soft skills through online training sessions in order to “sell” their professional competences to companies inside and outside of Africa. We call this model LinkedAfrica’s talent cloud (see diagram).

Full Pitch

LinkedAfrica.com is a pan-African professional social network. As of December 2012 LinkedAfrica.com has 450,000 registered users and it is the largest Africa focused professional social network.

Only 28% of Africans have stable wage-paying jobs. In Africa, youth unemployment is very high and very few Africans have university degrees. Africa’s job market suffers from a mismatch between skills possessed by African workers and those demanded by employers. And yet, according to a McKinsey survey, by 2040, Africa will have the largest workforce in the world, surpassing both China and India.

LinkedAfrica’s ambition is to open up and release the professional energies of Africans and put human resources at the heart of Africa’s social and economic development. LinkedAfrica wants to build a model in which African professionals are no longer job seekers but professional service providers who build their online professional identity, certify and improve their hard and soft skills through online training sessions in order to “sell” their professional competences to companies inside and outside of Africa. We call this model LinkedAfrica’s talent cloud (see diagram).

LinkedAfrica.com is available in French and English. It will soon be available in Arab, Portuguese and in some local African languages.
LinkedAfrica.com was created by Dr. Nicolas Bussard (CEO) and Emmanuel Henao (Director of business development) in January 2011. In 2011, they spent the entire year building an online service in beta mode (with only 30,000 members) that would truly be useful to its members. After devising the desired online solution, they decided to open it to a larger public in January 2012. This year, 420,000 additional users coming from all African countries signed up to bring the total of registered users to 450,000 (as of December 2012).
