FOCUS ON OUR ACTIVITES
Promoted by Digital Africa and deployed by Proparco, the Bridge Fund by Digital Africa is intended to be an appropriate response to the challenges confronting young innovative African companies, whose development is harmed by the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Africa Next Community is committed to driving co-investment in fast-growing innovative businesses by inviting English and French speaking venture capitalists from Europe and Africa to select projects based on e-pitches.
Launched in Summer 2020, the Resilient Summer School is the first training module developed by the Digital Africa Campus – a capacity-building program for African entrepreneurs co-developed with elite partners. This fully online module focused on entrepreneurial resilience, particularly important in times of crisis.
