Injini is the first & only education technology (EdTech) dedicated incubator & the largest seed-investor for EdTech companies on the African continent.
It is the only opportunity for EdTech entrepreneurs based anywhere in Africa to get industry specialist mentoring, support, scale up and funding introductions, and early-stage funding. Our mission is to improve learning outcomes across Africa by supporting early stage startups with evidence backed, scalable solutions.
This is the first step towards applying for your startup to join the Injini EdTech incubation & seed-stage investment programme. Only complete applications submitted before the deadline will be considered, and we will look most favourably on applications that are jargon-free, clear, concise and accurate.
Please note that the application must be completed in a single session and can’t be edited after submission. If you happen to submit an erroneous application, simply submit a fresh one – we will only consider the most recent submission from the time applications close.
If you have any queries about completing the form, please send an email to email@example.com.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Our programme is open to anyone from, based in or focused on any African country, whether you’re a for-profit or non-profit.
We are determined to ensure cost is no barrier to joining our programme.
We will cover the full cost of travel to and from Cape Town for all entrepreneurs and teams. We will pay for stipends. We will cover accommodation for those that need it. We will cover all programme related to travel.
Education specialist support
Our mentors, dinner speakers, workshop leads are overwhelmingly education specialists. We have an education expert panel. We have relationships with education business, government and charities at the international, national and local level.
Unlike any other incubator or accelerator in Africa, our programme will involve a focus on the science of education and trialling and refining ideas in education settings, including working with leading academic partners.
Each cohort member will get the technical support — such as a junior developer or game designer — they need to develop or build their idea. This is outside the direct funding and will come with project management and quality assurance support.
