For Startups

AfriFindInvest (AFI)  supports those startups catalysing innovation to shape opportunities across the world’s fastest-growing frontier. Across Africa, young, urbanizing and growing populations are in need of smarter, localised solutions to meet the rising demand for essential goods and services across the continent.

No universal remedy exists for startups in need of funding at the early stage. All too often, a lack of mentor support, knowledge and networks, also presents Founders with huge obstacles to raising capital and building a scalable business. AFI aims to support African Founders across an otherwise opaque fundraising process. Learn more about our solutions for early-stage tech companies.

“AFI’S PITS programme has been a great value-add, both to our startup and to me personally.
I highly recommend and look forward to keeping the collaboration going even beyond investor readiness.”
