Our Why

We are convinced entrepreneurs will change Africa.

While increasing political stability opens new vistas across Africa, we view existing inefficiencies in the continent as opportunities that can be leveraged by entrepreneurs using technology to create scalable products.

About

We invest in Africa focused founders with global ambition.

Ventures Platform is a Pan- African early stage fund and accelerator that actively finds, funds and supports innovative companies solving real problems in Africa. Our team mirrors the kind of founders we work with; hungry goal-getters with a deep-rooted desire to win.

Each year

Each year, We choose 15-20 companies to join our 16 weeks mentorship and growth driven accelerator program in Lagos, investing $40K in each company.

During the program we super focus them on 3 things; building great products; talking to users and selling. Accepted startups enjoy hands-on mentorship, support from our team on specific areas like; growth, product and business development and access to the Ventures Platform Network for life.
