Connecting African startups to opportunities

African Ventures against COVID-19

Dear entrepreneur,

The scope and magnitude of COVID-19 is immense and continues to scale rapidly in its reach. This is undoubtedly a tough and difficult period for Africa’s young startup industry and for the founder community at large. Please join VC4A’s campaign to secure support programs and funding for African ventures

We seek your feedback and direction, and encourage you to participate in this survey. We will take your views and share outputs anonymously with strategic industry stakeholders in our continued push for action. 

This survey is for entrepreneurs only and should take 5 minutes. Again, you can be assured that we will treat the responses anonymously. We will keep you updated about the results in case you leave your contact details in the last question. If you would like to join us in subsequent conversations, or if any questions remain, please email us:

As always, your participation is most appreciated.
