Why we exist

Born from the need to accelerate… acceleration… in Africa to serve more entrepreneurs and build the Africa Rising narrative.

Tech-based investment is growing at a rapid rate in Africa based on a new cadre of both leaders and solutions. However, both investors and entrepreneurs face challenges in making a match. Investors feel that there is a lack of investable opportunities, whilst entrepreneurs find it difficult to secure investment opportunities. Accelerators are meant to address this gap by getting businesses ready for investment, facilitating opportunities, and providing crucial support.

However, access and resources are often barriers for entrepreneurs, particularly for those who live outside major centres and cannot afford to participate in an accelerator programme. For accelerators, the relatively high cost per participant remains a challenge. This is magnified when an accelerator attempts to scale by increasing the number and geographic reach of their participants.

Our Approach

The TechTribe Accelerator’s multifaceted approach aims to address some of these challenges. We have designed a set of course and online learning programmes for entrepreneurs to develop themselves and their businesses. The programmes are delivered via an online learning management system accessible to entrepreneurs irrespective of geography as long as they have access to a reliable internet connection.
