About the Opportunities
We are looking for the next generation of African startups disrupting industry sectors including FinTech, InsureTech, AgriTech, IoT & Connectivity, Digital Health, and RegTech.
Backed by anchor partner Telecel Group, the program is ideal for startups with a mobile tech focus. Additional corporate partners are lining up to engage with startups through pilots and Proof of Concepts projects that can open the doors for longer-term commercial agreements.
The Africa Startup Initiative Program was launched by Telecel Group as part of CSR activities. Telecel Group then partnered with Startupbootcamp AfriTech to create the ASIP Accelerator Program which contributes in a meaningful way to the African community to help the young Startups in Africa whose innovative ideas are creating a difference in their communities.
Starting in 2017, the first SBC AfriTech program accelerated 29 incredible African startups that have set an incredibly high bar for the next program.
