Seedstars Africa Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund investing in high-growth companies active across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Early-stage entrepreneurs across the region are creating innovative online and offline models responding to critical products and service needs.
They enjoy large market opportunities and boast high growth rates, and yet still have scarce access to capital and support compared to other regions of the World.
Capitalizing on Seedstars’ pioneering presence in African entrepreneurship ecosystems since 2012, Seedstars Africa Ventures is profoundly an African investor bringing smart capital for entrepreneurs and providing them access to pan-African and international support.
To be eligible for funding from Seedstars Africa Ventures, there is no pre-requisite to go through one of Seedstars’ acceleration programs.
More specifically, we look for:
- Products and services in high demand
- Scalable innovation whether online or offline
- Post-revenue companies with demonstrated growth
Our initial investments range from $250k to $2mn. As long-term partners, we like to reinvest in our portfolio companies when it makes sense.
We like leading terms to help founders syndicate rounds and foreign investors navigate Africa’s uniqueness, but we are happy to participate in any deal where we can add value.
Our presence spans 25+ countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and can help you expand in neighboring countries, recruit talents or find local expertise.
We connect you to corporate and institutional partners across industries and sectors to accelerate your development.
We are a team of former entrepreneurs and experienced investors providing hands-on support and access to international networks leveraging our 250,000 strong community.
