Ventures Platform

Foundation

At Ventures Platform Foundation, we are catalyzing innovation for under-served communities in Africa by building the capacity of African Entrepreneurs and Innovators leveraging technology to create sustainable solutions to the most urgent problems on the continent.

Entrepreneurship Development
We believe that wide-scale job creation is key to unlocking economic prosperity in Africa. To create the jobs that Africa needs, we have decided to back innovative entrepreneurs building scalable businesses that solve problems and create value for the world.
Learning
We believe that innovators achieve better outcomes when they are provided the right tools, resources and models that they need to innovate. Through our learning programs, we empower people and institutions by equipping them with the skills to address challenges through innovation.
Policy Advocacy
We believe that regulations should match the pace of innovation and globalization. In order to create visible impact, government interventions are needed to address the regulatory hurdles faced by the digital and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Through our policy programs, we work to create a favorable policy environment for innovators and entrepreneurs.
