APPLY: Seedstars Africa Ventures For Early-stage African Startups

Seedstars Africa Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund investing in high-growth companies active across Sub-Saharan Africa.

Early-stage entrepreneurs across the region are creating innovative online and offline models responding to critical products and service needs. They enjoy large market opportunities and boast high growth rates, and yet still have scarce access to capital and support compared to other regions of the World.

Capitalizing on Seedstars’ pioneering presence in African entrepreneurship ecosystems since 2012, Seedstars Africa Ventures is profoundly an African investor bringing smart capital for entrepreneurs and providing them access to pan-African and international support.

Seedstars Africa Ventures is looking to fund and support these African champions who are making value chains more efficient, providing bottom-of-the-pyramid access to basic products and services, or serving the fast-growing middle class. If you are a talented entrepreneur, join the challenge!
