The World Is Really at Your Fingertips

At Find Things You Like LLC, we are dedicated to connecting members of the African community with each other and the rest of the world.

Our Story

Most of the time, members of the African community have to make tremendous efforts to find products and services that fit their needs. Some businesses that are not well acquainted with the Afro-Caribbean culture may hold certain stigmas or stereotypes about Africans. These negative notions about the African community can be deterrents in their shopping options. To help address this social ill and provide the African community with more choices, our company was established in 2015.

Our Vision

Our vision is simple – to empower African people all over the world. We want to make it easy as pie for you to connect with likeminded African spirits, find top products and services, discover local events, and so, so much more.

 

Our Mission

Sorry Tom Cruise, but this mission is NOT impossible! After all, it’s projected that there will be nearly 4.5 BILLION Africans walking the planet by 2100. It’s our duty to give these people an online portal that makes them feel accepted, empowered, loved, and valued as human beings.

Connect

Discover products, services, resources, mentorship, event information – we could go on, but we’d be here all day. One world. One Mother Africa.

Empower

The mission goes deeper than just helping people find things they like. It’s about helping them find themselves in today’s confusing world.

Entertain

Stay glued to global trends and discover incredible movies, music videos, fashion content, sports highlights….name it, get it, like it.
