The AFD Group recognises the important role of start-ups in developing innovative solutions that respond to local needs in developing and emerging countries.
These start-ups have significant potential in terms of job creation and impact on local economic development.
AFD and Proparco thus bring together capital, resources and business know-how to support African entrepreneurs and their entrepreneurial ecosystems.
If you are an entrepreneur looking for local investors, you can contact our fund partners directly.
Direct investments are highly-selective, and the exception to our core activity, which is to support the growth of private equity and venture capital funds that target SMEs and entrepreneurs in Africa.
Consult the list below for our local incubator partners, to find out more about the services available (financing, mentoring, training, etc.)
Enter AFD’s Digital Challenge to benefit from mentoring, incubation, networking and funding for your project!
