We are interested in finding and funding amazing teams to build, deliver and scale services and products that matter in local and eventually global audiences.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, we are focusing on the underserved seed/early-stage venture and growth capital technology investment opportunities. Using our Silicon Valley insights and experience, along with knowledge as an amplifier, we aim to fund and develop strategic platforms, incubate local high potential growth companies and help develop mentorship opportunities and local networks. Our goal is to add significant value to, and grow, the tech-based entrepreneurial ecosystems across the continent.

EchoVC is passionate about supporting world-class entrepreneurs and we absolutely love what we do. We understand how hard it is to build great companies, and like all great entrepreneurs, we are orthogonal thinkers and we don’t flinch.
