8B is a VC-backed technology company providing universities and employers access to the world’s fastest-growing talent pool. Our end-to-end platform enables African students going to universities outside the continent to access a full suite of tools and resources to ensure their success.

Here are a few examples of how we level the playing field for ambitious young Africans:

  • 8B introduced the first loan comparison platform focused on African students going to global universities.
  • We launched our own competitive loan program to fill the gaps that other lenders fail to reach.
  • We support a rapidly growing community of over 200,000 African students currently studying abroad or in the process of doing so soon. 
  • We created the first job board specifically designed to help global employers connect with bright African candidates.

Recent News: 

  • 8B was recently featured on CNN International announcing Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter of the musical group The Roots joining our Board.
  • We made a commitment at the 2022 Clinton Global Initiative for a $30m partnership with Nelnet Bank, which is the first lending partnership of its kind with a US bank.
