We are venture builders dedicated to solving some of Africa’s biggest challenges and capitalizing on it’s incredible potential by leveraging market and tech opportunities. Over the next five years, we’ll build 30 businesses from scratch in our Incubator and scale more than 70 existing growth-stage ventures through our Accelerator.
