Our Mission

 

We are on a mission of accelerating the rise of Africa by empowering its most impactful and daring young entrepreneurs.

Our Vision

 

To be the go-to network that supports young African entrepreneurs to usher in a new Africa that thrives with advanced technology, inclusive financial systems, sound health care and accessible quality education.

Our Focus

 

We are focused on you, the entrepreneur; we are focused on you, the team.

Our Philosophy

While the world is debating whether Africa is rising or not, we are busy accelerating that rise.

We understand that Africa’s biggest challenge is its youth unemployment while we also realise that Africa’s biggest opportunity is its youth potential. Hence, we position ourselves as a venture fund by the young for the young who invests in people before businesses. We embrace founders who align with that.

 At the core of our philosophy, you will find collaboration. We do not collaborate only with our chosen investees, but even those who don’t get funding. We highly encourage our founders to collaborate with each other to make Africa a better place. We pride ourselves as a catalyst for collaboration in the continent.
