Prosper Africa/Future Africa Accelerate Africa Program 2023 for early stage African Founders

Accelerate Africa is a 7-week pre-accelerator program where we prepare African early-stage entrepreneurs to apply for global accelerator programs where they can receive investment and access to a global community of Investors, Customers, and Networks to grow their businesses.

Prosper Africa and Future Africa have announced the launch of the Accelerate Africa program. The program provides intensive guidance, mentorship, and resources for early-stage African Founders. In partnership with Prosper Africa, Future Africa will support dynamic African entrepreneurs as they embark on a 7-week pre-accelerator program that will prepare them for global scale through accelerator programs such as Y-Combinator, 500 Startups, and Techstars. The program will position these entrepreneurs to raise more investment funding and build more robust startups.

This partnership delivers on the U.S. Government’s commitments from the U.S-Africa Leaders Summit to increase investment in the continent. Prosper Africa committed $170 million in the Summit’s Deal Room to increase U.S. investment in Africa and African exports to the United States by $2 billion in the next five years, including through the new Prosper Africa Catalytic Investment Facility.
