StartHub Africa: Committed to improving Entrepreneurship Ecosystems.

StartHub Africa is committed to boosting entrepreneurship and innovation in Africa. We have a systemic mindset as good entrepreneurship support requires multiple players and functions. We build those networks for African entrepreneurs, matching with investors, connecting African startups to opportunities, introducing quality partners and running our own activities where support is otherwise scarce.

StartHub has a data-driven mindset, meaning that we measure startup success through increase and revenues, jobs, and investment obtained. This drives action within our organization. StartHubis committed to evidence-based program development, emaning that we use latest research available in the field of entrepreneurship in Africa to design interventions. Finally, even the word entrepreneurship means “to undertake”: All programs with StartHub will be geared towards action as action generates practical learning and real outcomes.
