Research Beeline provides the shortest and most direct connection between grant-makers and researchers in Africa by providing a reliable and comprehensive flow of research funding information. On any given day, and looking from across the world, there are thousands of grantmakers and sponsors availing funds for researchers in Africa, while on the other end, we have a very eager and capable cohort of researchers readily willing to conduct life-changing research from their institutions across the continent. We simply connect the two.

our mission

To enhance research capacity for institutions in Africa as well as the quality and quantity of Phd graduates in African Universities.

our vision

To be the most trusted source of funding information and insights by researchers and research managers to improve the quality of life in Africa.


We have designed a world class online platform where we publish calls for funding. This was after a realization that Universities in Africa, just like anywhere else in the world, need critical information on research funding and capacity building in a timely manner. From our research, we noted that many lack a consistent source of such information and what is available in the market for them is normally quite expensive and not always affordable; for that reason, we put up a team of IT experts, journalists and academics to develop a comprehensive, useful and a relevant platform. Out of that team, we now have the Funds Beeline platform www.fundsbeeline.
