Societies have challenges to solve. And someone has to solve them. Wealth creation considering the SDG`s is paramount to positive and inclusive development in Africa. Though, aid has proven to be ineffective. A new paradigm where change comes from within societies and communities requires confidence, skills, and resources to materialize. VilCap has shown in 2019 that 90% of investments went to startups with expat Co-Founders. Entrepreneurship is challenged to drive inequality. We have done a deep-dive into where so many African problem-solvers will come from in emerging countries: The universities. University-based African entrepreneurship support is not well-coordinated and executed. StartHub has built viable pathways for African student entrepreneurs to build ventures. For those startups to have an impact, they must be innovative, scalable, and change systems. We support African entrepreneurs to be the changemakers they can be.
Why StartHub supports African innovation and entrepreneurship
