Why Afric’innov?

Entrepreneurship-supporting institutions such as incubators and technopoles, are flourishing all over Africa. They are valuable and necessary relays of development and enable African innovators to considerably reinforce their chances of success in creating sustainable and job-creating businesses.

These institutions, generally quite young and with different levels of professionalism, can be isolated and lack the appropriate resources to grow. Financing these structures, like the start-ups they accompany, remains a major difficulty and represent a constraint on innovation. Banks and private investors shun from financing the risky first steps of an entrepreneurial journey, whereas public policies are too often ill-adapted to the realities of these innovators.

Faced with this observation, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and a consortium of African incubators and French structures involved in innovation have launched Afric‘innov. The program’s objective is to help professionalize support to structures for entrepreneurship in Africa, through capacity building nd networking.
