About the CBA: Our Story
Who we are
The Christian Business Angels are Christians with business expertise relevant to the startup & operation of new businesses selected for growth of local employment in our target countries. Each member contributes time plus an annual tax-deductible donation in support of our investment activities.

How we started
The idea for a group of Christian “Business Angels” was conceived at the end of an entrepreneurs trip to Kenya to view the activities of Compassion International with babies, toddlers, schoolchildren and university students.
A trip with great impact!
How we operate
In simple terms, the CBA is active on 2 fronts:
The recruiting of Business Angels, members & resources from others who have been blessed like us, and ,
The deployment of those Business Angels & resources to existing & would-be entrepreneurs in developing countries.
Where we operate
As of 2023, the CBA is active as follows:
Regional chapters in Europe (Netherlands), North America (USA) and Africa (Kenya) with members from those countries and others, and,
Training & investment in Africa (Kenya) for the creation of in-country employment to help alleviate poverty.
Our results so far
As of year-end 2022, the CBA has accomplished the following:
Development of the paperwork & processes for the deployment of grants, loans and shareholding investment in developing countries, and,
Deployment of annual workshops for the training of over 200 entrepreneurs,
Supporting the setup and growth of some 89 companies, of which CBA is an active financial participant in 32, and
Through which 500+ new jobs were created.
