Budget : 2 105 000 €

Context

In many sectors of activity, inclusive business initiatives are flourishing in Africa. They seek to combine a social mission with a long-term economic model, and many of them base their development on the use of digital technologies, a vector for growth and agility. These small, high-potential enterprises need specific support to scale up and maximise their impact.

Innovation tools such as digital technology offer new opportunities to the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) populations, strengthening their social and financial inclusion and initiating job creation.

Goals

Facilitate the emergence and development of inclusive business start-ups with a digital dimension in 4 continental African countries, by building a network of strong, equipped and proactive incubators on these topics.

Beneficiaries

  • 60 inclusive and digital start-ups strengthened
  • 1 fund of 320 000 EUR financed 12 selected start-ups in the acceleration phase
  • 10 awareness-raising workshops organised in the 4 countries
