Connecting Africa’s Entrepreneurs Survey

A Study by International Finance Corporation


The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has been a long-time promoter of growth of entrepreneurial ecosystems in Africa, by investing in and supporting companies, funds, accelerators/incubators, and other organizations.

The IFC is currently conducting a study to better understand and improve the matching process between entrepreneurs like you and investors/accelerators. The study is motivated by the difficulties many high-potential entrepreneurs face in obtaining capital and other support. 

The benefits that you will get from participating in this study are:

Direct introductions facilitated when compatibility aligns, ushering you to a potential positive collaboration with like-minded investors, accelerators, or incubators.
  • Gain access to a list crafted by IFC, spotlighting the top recommended investment partners. Complementing this, a succinct report delves into why these partners represent an ideal match for your vision, opening pathways to strategic alliances.
  • Based on our random selection, unlock the extraordinary if you are selected for a direct conversation with IFC’s investment consultants, associates, and partners. The investment consultants are primed to guide you toward partners perfectly aligned with your preferences, ensuring your entrepreneurial journey flourishes. On top of that, the interactions with IFC’s investment associates and partners are potentially paving the way for a transformative investment prospect in your venture.
