A new and innovative solution for entrepreneurs in the pre-seed phase in Francophone Africa:
Digital Africa understood the need to support startups at a critical moment of their existence, in the ideation phase, when the pressure of lack of funding prevents any development, despite the quality of the projects. Fuzé is a €6.5 million facility that invests in startups at the ideation and MVP stage founded by African entrepreneurs. It is wholly owned by Digital Africa and aims to address the lack of seed funding in francophone Africa.
