How We Work

Innovation Management

Innovation Management

We help startups and small businesses in Africa to embrace Open Innovation, and ensure they implement disruptive ideas and apply innovation through Open Innovation Challenges.

Through Open Innovation Challenges, we encourage these businesses to leverage both their internal and external strengths and opportunities to grow. This provides them with the opportunity to connect, share, create and find expertise they may need to scale.



One of the challenges of startups and small businesses in Africa is lack of funds to grow those ideas and businesses. Having seen the need for African businesses and startups to attract funds to work with, we introduce startups and small businesses on our network to some of our partners who may be willing to invest in them.

Global Opportunities

Global Opportunities

We work with innovation ecosystems around the world to bring investment, market, collaborations and other opportunities to African entrepreneurs and innovators. We bring them opportunities from USA, Europe, Israel, and other African countries.



We offer corporate organisations in Africa training Programmes on how to use Open Innovation to help deliver tangible solutions to real business challenges, thereby fostering collaborations and partnerships. We provide these organisations holistic approach to internal and external innovation management in their organisations.



We work with investors  who are interested in investing in African startups and small businesses through seed funding. We make necessary introductions and connections.
