Mission

Africa Startup Initiative Program aims to contribute in meaningful way to the African community by supporting the young startups in Africa whose innovative ideas are creating a difference in their communities.

Our goal is to discover Africa’s most talented entrepreneurs operating in the fields of telecom and technology, and help them create successful companies at scale. We support the startups via our Accelerator and Investment Programs. The Accelerator program provides the startups with coaching and mentoring, workshops, access to markets, and education. The Investment Program emphasizes access to investors, funding, grants, angel investments, and venture capital.

We want to expose the pre-seed companies to the international organizations and bridge the knowledge and expertise to attract partners that can add value and transform the entrepreneurial concepts into sustainable businesses that serve the community and the society at large.

Vision

ASIP will be recognized as a leading Startup Initiative Program that provides the startups with a level of support that surpasses their highest expectations.

Our ability to leverage relationships on behalf of our program participants to provide them with boundless access to investors and markets will be unmatched.

The startups will be transformed into well-established firms that introduce the most innovative solutions in Africa and become drivers of economic growth in the community.
