Africa’s leading VC firm, Launch Africa, has invested in Homecoming Revolution’s new on-demand expertise platform, Insights by Experts.
Homecoming Revolution a pan-African executive search company,, launched its new platform during a colorful stakeholder event at Sankara Hotel, Nairobi. Dubbed “Insights By Experts”, the platform helps global investors and companies access independent talent on-demand, from a vetted community of experienced African experts across a wide range of African countries and sectors.

Congratulations to the Insights by Experts team for creating such an amazing platform of so many different specialties” Stephen Mburu, CEO, Phillips Pharmaceuticals Kenya, stated that.
The launch has been spurred by a soaring number of investors and companies who want to scale in Africa but are constrained by a lack of quick and relevant “on the ground” knowledge. Insights by Experts provides a rich resource of African experts, curated by Homecoming Revolution. It has been operational since 2003.
Experts from Africa can provide up-to date, in-depth insights, advice, and opinions. You can engage the experts for a variety of purposes, including one-on-1 chats, contracts, projects, coaching, mentoring, and introductions to board positions.
“It is a real privilege to create a platform that shares deep African expertise with the world. We hope it will stimulate significant economic growth across the continent.
Thank you to our incredible team, experts and investors who have made this idea come to life”Angel Jones, CEO of Homecoming Revolution, stated that he agreed.
Experts will be helpful during value identification (deal creation) and validation (due diligence), which includes customer perception, founder reference, competitor snapshots and technical assessments.
The experts’ services also come in handy during value acceleration (performance improvement), which includes governance, pricing validation, human resources consulting, go-to-market intelligence, partnerships & distributors’ procurement, as well as obvious quick wins.
“It has been great working with the Homecoming Revolution team and I congratulate them on their new expertise platform, Insights by Experts. Now it will be easy to pick the brains of a vast number of different experts across Africa”,Leonard Kimutai Tunui, Strategy Director at Coca Cola Beverages Africa (Kenya), said the following:

Final, experts will be required during market value optimization, which includes independent business plans validation and long-term improvements plans.
“For the PE and VC industry, we are continually in search of talent to work with for market insights as we grow our companies, or for senior team members for our portfolio companies. I think this platform is quite unique and could be of enormous help to our members”, said Eva Warigia, Executive Director of the East Africa Private Equity & Venture Capital Association.
The platform is accessible via self-service and assistance from the organization. Self-service involves six steps that start with a search across multiple countries, industries, and disciplines.
The client then sends a consultation request to the expert with key questions, and suggested meeting dates. The client receives the expert’s response and confirms the consultation date, which is then followed by a calendar invite with a video link from the expert.
The expert is then contacted by the client who gains exclusive knowledge. Finally, the expert is rated by the client.
The platform makes it easy to notify the recruiting team directly if the customer needs specific assistance.
These expert packages can be customized to suit your budget, time delivery, and outputs.
There are hundreds of experts currently loaded onto the platform and thousands of other experts in Homecoming Revolution’s unique database.
