Who we are

AFIDBA is a multidisciplinary, multi-stakeholder, international and bilingual program dedicated to the inclusive, digital and sustainable economic growth in continental Africa.

Since January 2019, the AFIDBA program, funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD), has been run by a consortium of 11 actors (associations, NGOs, incubators, technical and financial partners) driven by a common desire to contribute to the sustainable economic development of the African continent.
