Entrance Ventures is a U.S based seed investment firm which focuses on investment in Africa & USA. With 54 countries in Africa, and the youngest population in the world, Africa is growing fast, and Entrance is empowering the companies that will shape this continent. By 2055, the continent’s youth population (aged 15-24), is expected to be more than double the 2015 total of 226 million. With this in mind, Entrance prepares startups to integrate their solution in Africa today using a special model we have developed, called “Empathy Fusion”.
We provide a 3-month program designed to give founders the support they need to reach their most pressing critical challenge to access the African continent.
Startups will work with a team of experienced, passionate influencers in Africa, to raise awareness for product growth, and build brand identity, to reach an active community of product users within the continent.
Founders will work with a network of startups local to an African country of their choosing, to fudge partnerships, and navigate the hurdles of embracing a new market. In addition, startups will receive investment capital to continously focus on growth and expansion within the continent.
