ENRICH in Africa (EiA), in partnership with Co-creation hub (CcHub), is introducing a pioneering initiative – the Africa to Europe scaling program. This innovative endeavor aims to empower promising African startups to achieve remarkable growth by entering the European market.
The program, spanning four months, offers comprehensive support tailored to elevate African tech startups into the European market. Participants will benefit from immersive knowledge sessions about the EU market, gain insights into local markets, and receive personalized mentorship.
Highlights of the program include an engaging one-week on-site immersion event in Dublin, Ireland. This event will feature knowledge-sharing sessions, networking opportunities with mentors, potential partners, EiA champions, and prominent figures from the European industry.
The program focuses on building capacities for startups to access new markets and prepares them for investment readiness. Participants will have the privilege of receiving feedback and strategic insights from subject matter experts, ensuring their ventures are well-prepared for scaling.
Each startup will be paired with a dedicated mentor who will guide and support them throughout their scaling journey. The program also facilitates access to funding from investors, venture capitalists, and European development finance institutions.
As part of this transformative experience, startups will have the chance to forge cross-border partnerships and collaborations with European counterparts, startups, corporates, and key stakeholders. This initiative will foster a dynamic community of African entrepreneurs who can share knowledge, learn from one another, and capitalize on networking opportunities.
