About

We are a startup that builds startups

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

Once a year

We invest in a number of companies usually 10-15.

The companies move to Abuja for a period of 16 weeks, during this period, we super focus them on 3 things building great products; talking to users and selling, we provide them with all the support they need to grow fast.

We go further

Outside our 16 weeks’ acceleration program

we also invest in companies that might not have been part of our program but we really love the founders and are convinced they are on to something.

Our Why

We are convinced entrepreneurs will change the continent

and create huge economic prosperity, we want to be at the center of that revolution, providing all the support they would need to succeed. This is our ethos and the sole reason why we exist.
