Through the I&P Acceleration Technologies program, Investisseurs & Partenaires finances and provides technical assistance to digital-oriented African SMEs. These startups are the place of technical innovations specific to African realities and have a great impact potential.
Launched in 2020, the program has so far financed 6 companies: Keiwa (Ivory Coast, Senegal) - Smart Predict (Madagascar) - Sayna (Madagascar) - Legafrik (Ivory Coast) - Teliman (Mali) - Jiro Ve (Madagascar), giving them access to financing and adapted skills. I&P Acceleration Technologies intends to contribute to the emergence of the first African digital startups in countries where financing solutions are still rare.
Launched in December 2019 with AFD’s support, the Seed Fund by Digital Africa aims to provide initial funding to African digital start-ups. It offers assistance and financing tools to support the initial development phases in the life of a start-up, the seed phase.
