Since we first opened our doors, StartUpAfrica has been guided by one overarching goal: creating opportunities for youth entrepreneurs. We are the place aspiring youth entrepreneurs call to make sense of anything from their business ideas to strategies for implementing them, mentorship and seeking seed funding.

What we do

  • Connect, mentor and build business skills of students and other youth and women
  • Empower unemployed and underemployed African youth to build and sustain businesses, create jobs, and add value to the economy
  • Increase entrepreneurship engagement of African Diaspora and allies globally


Support youth in building business skills and in endeavors that foster financial independence, create jobs and grow African economies.


An Africa resplendent with big, bold business ideas.
