Applications Open for Latest VC4A Venture Showcase

Applications are now open for the annual VC4A Venture Showcase, which helps African founders leading innovative and disruptive startups and scaleups to showcase their businesses to the most active investors on the continent. 

Since its launch in 2017, the VC4A Venture Showcase Africa alumni have raised over US$630 million, and this year’s edition is seeking startups that are operating in Africa, generating revenue, and looking to raise a seed or Series A round. The Venture Showcase is sector-agnostic, and focuses on high growth, high-impact ventures that are driving economic growth throughout the continent.

This year’s edition is in partnership with the African European Digital Innovation Bridge (AEDIB) and Work in Progress, and means in addition to seed and Series A, there will be a further four tracks, namely climate smart agriculture, smart cities, digital trade, and clean tech.

Selected ventures will gain access to the VC4A Venture Showcase deal room, including more than 200 early-stage investor organisations, as well as to Investor Readiness Training (IRT), mentorship and technical support from partnering VC investors and corporates.
