With almost 5 years in investment banking and a decade as a corporate executive, including four years as MD in a 175-year-old pan-African financial services group, Karabo Morule transitioned to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams in 2020.Currently, her focus is on elevating African art to an asset class, empowering collectors to preserve and protect the lasting value of modern and contemporary artworks from under-represented regions. She is the Founder of Capital Art, an art fintech service, and Amara Strategic Investments, a venture philanthropy firm supporting early-stage startups in Africa. She was recognised as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader in 2018 and the second black African woman to qualify as an actuary in South Africa. She also served on the board of a financial services startup that successfully raised a Series C fundraise in late 2021.

 


 

Art School Africa, a non-profit organisation established in 2022, is dedicated to empowering individuals across the African continent to kickstart or advance their careers in the art industry. In partnership with the Harvard University Center for African Studies, the organisation conducts comprehensive research, spanning countries such as South Africa, Kenya, and Ghana, to gain profound insights into the distinctive challenges faced by art practitioners as they embark on their professional journeys. This research forms the foundation for the development of educational content designed to effectively support artists, curators, writers, gallerists, collectors, and more.

 

Embracing a hybrid model, Art School Africa offers a multitude of free online talks and panel discussions, as well as in-person workshops led by accomplished professionals. These workshops are recorded and subsequently uploaded to their growing online platform, which acts as an important archive of shared knowledge pertaining to professional artistic practice in Africa, and ensures accessibility to learners across borders.
