Catalytic Africa Pilot Launches!

Dear Early-Stage Investor,

We are thrilled to announce that the Catalytic Africa pilot has completed the registration phase and we have now begun the application review process. Congratulations to our nominees for the pilot Cameroun Angel Network (CAN), South South-East Angel Network (SSEAN), ActivSpaces Hub and Technovision (TVC) Labs.

Catalytic Africa was established by ABAN and AfriLabs with the purpose to support the African startup ecosystem in the most efficient and meaningful way while delivering real, measurable impact to stakeholders. It is a cross stakeholder initiative that aims to strengthen entrepreneurs and startups, hubs, and angel investors while delivering impact results to institutional funders. The project provides start-ups and business angels with matching grant funds.

We look forward to significant learning opportunities from this pilot as we work toward the full launch of the Catalytic Africa platform in October/November.


Warm regards,

On behalf of the Catalytic Africa team,

Fadilah Tchoumba
Secretary-General, ABAN
