As part of enabling the next generation of Africa’s social impact entrepreneurs, a $150K (USD) cash for equity investment opportunity through the Katapult Accelerator exists for an African based startup using exponential technologies i.e. AI, Block chain, Quantum computing etc. to solve a social issue on the African continent.
I am especially interested in nominating startups
- whose core team are from and work in Sub-Sahara Africa especially in West-Central Africa (does not matter if your primary language English, French etc., all are welcome)
- who are willing to scale their solution across the African continent.
- who are utilizing science and technology that has been incubated from any of Africa’s formal and informal education programs
- who already have proof of traction with paying customers and a scalable solution
- who are working on a social issue that has multiplier social impact on the bottom of Africa’s population- education, healthcare, impact fintech, agriculture
Please send a 2pager to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 19, 2018 and include your WhatsApp number. Title your Email as God’s Plan.
The first page should detail the problem statement, the size of the market opportunity in Africa, your solution, how you came about your solution, your traction i.e. revenues and paying customers, your competition and what you need to scale your solution across Africa, include other relevant info e.g. patents, country of incorporation etc.
The second page should be a Team slide with photos and bios/roles of the team members.
Note: I will only contact those I am interested in nominating by May 20, 2018
Share widely across Africa!

Note: This investment opportunity does not come from me. I am only helping to find the best startups in my network for the Katapult Accelerator.
