FOCUS ON OUR ACTIVITES
Talent 4 Startups is a program which aims to support the training of talents in tech and digital professions on the African continent. By covering the costs of training in high-demand sectors and then facilitating the connection between talents and start-ups that are recruiting, Talent 4 Startups improves the employability of young people while meeting the skills needs of the ecosystem.
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.
The Seed Fund by Digital Africa is dedicated to financing and supporting African digital startups.
With €15 million allocated by the French Development Agency (AFD), the fund relies on the expertise of six ecosystem operators to develop training programmes for incubators and seed stage financing for startups in 45 African countries.
