THE MOVEMEBACK VISION

Movemeback aspires to drive positive economic and social growth in Africa by providing an internationally trusted platform through which individuals, organisations and institutions across the world interact and partner with Africa. We’re making Africa’s most exciting and unique opportunities accessible to talented professionals, students, leaders and influencers, whilst providing a platform to empower and enable those individuals to contribute to Africa’s economic and social growth and development story. Movemeback’s founders, Oyin Solebo & Charles Sekwalor, share a commitment and passion for realising tangible and positive change in Africa, through the application of business, talent, entrepreneurial problem-solving, and increased access to information and knowledge.

WHAT WE DO

Movemeback is a members-only community, connecting overseas leaders, influencers, talent and organisations to unique, exclusive and exciting high potential opportunities on the African continent. We focus on distinctive and non-cliché opportunities from senior leadership roles with Africa’s most influential organisations through to unique investments, creative and entrepreneurial partnerships, nation shaping, social impact and more. We’re structured to enable talent relocation – including internships, secondments or remote engagements – and the facilitation of investment and advisory relationships. We’re also focused on supporting the move to the continent through services, insights, content and access to a collaborative community.

THE PROBLEMS WE ARE ADDRESSING

When surveyed, African organisations failed to cite ‘customer/consumer demand’ as a point of concern. On the contrary – satisfying existing demand majored as a primary consideration, with access to suitable talent and finance for sustenance and growth being two of the biggest underlying…

2. THE FULL WEALTH OF AFRICAN OPPORTUNITIES ARE NOT VISIBLE TO OVERSEAS TALENT AND LEADERS

We are enabling leaders, influencers and top-talent to discover and engage with the full diversity of African opportunities:

Anecdotally, the level of interest in African opportunities is at an all-time high. There is an ever-increasing focus on African opportunities overseas, and it is of no coincidence that corporate websites have also started to evolve, affording Africa its own section as opposed a bullet point grouped within ‘the rest of…

3. THERE ARE BOTH REAL AND PERCEIVED CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH MOVING TO OR OPERATING ON THE CONTINENT

We are offering soft and tangible support for individuals and organisations interested in operating on the continent:

Countries and cities in Africa can be hugely rewarding arenas in which to operate, from the perspective of business potential, cultural richness and depth, diversity of experience and proximity to…

4. THE AFRICA STORY IS OUT OF DATE AND NEEDS REWRITING

Movemeback is committed to crowd-sourcing the updated, more insightful version of Africa’s story and contributing to writing its next chapter

Even today with increased political and economic attention, the story is uninspiringly black and white. On one side everyone is familiar with the default – ‘Africa: the troubled ‘country’ of the poor, needy and under-developed’ – and we’re reminded today with fears of an impending pandemic that stories of growth and prosperity are easily submerged by the default historic…
