Finding Africa's 17.
Welcome to the Disrupting Ventures Innovation Fund.
We believe there are 17 exceptional African visionaries who can shift the African dial forward. Think Steve Jobs. Think Fred Swaniker. Our mission is to find them and provide them with growth funding until they accomplish their vision for Africa.
Disrupting Ventures was started in 2017, driven by the idea that there has to be a better way to drive Africa's growth by providing unfettered access to capital, resources and networks.
To achieve its highly-selective dealflow, Disrupting Ventures' team of investment professionals reviews thousands of companies each year, meets with selected management teams and, after an in-depth due diligence process, selects opportunities to share with the investment board.
By leveraging its extensive network, Disrupting Ventures can proactively identify and pursue companies, gaining access to investment opportunities that are closed to other new investors. Disrupting Ventures invests its own capital alongside its investors in every venture.
Read about our investment approach below:
- We receive a lot of applications and whilst we endeavour to reply to all applications, we may not be able to do that in time or at all. We encourage you to carefully think about your application to give it the best chance of success. A yardstick would be whether a page can be created on the Disrupting Africa Encyclopedia about you and your product.
- All inspirational African Innovators and Entrepreneus will be included in the Encyclopedia and automatically qualify for discount rates via our partner accounting network.
