Our Approach

Our grassroots-driven nominations strategy enables us to source startups across multiple verticals beyond just fintech & logistics.

We find hidden gems at the earliest stages of growth, from bootstrapped to seed stage and tell stories that span the investment spectrum. We search beyond the leading African hubs to find startups from all 54 African countries to achieve wholesome geographical breadth.


Startups are featured based on their innovativeness, product-market fit, scalability, attractiveness to investors & Africa-centricity
