Venture Finance in Africa Research

Tracking the progress of Africa's startup community

Dear Entrepreneur,

The Startup Research Africa team invites you to participate in our annual benchmark study on African venture performance.

VC4A is not only the best place to match young businesses with investors and other opportunities. It is also the best place to gain insights into the development of Africa’s start-up evolution. For the very best insights, we need your answers.

The VC4A annual survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete. It covers all the core performance indicators for your business: financial performance, staffing, capital and impact. You will receive FREE access to the Venture Finance in Africa Research results (value USD 79,99) as a token of our gratitude for completing the survey.

Not only is it great to know, which types of start-ups have traction and which are struggling, it is also a unique opportunity to share your experience with those who invest, design incubation programmes or support the ecosystem in any way. They need to hear from you to make the right decisions.

Of course, all your data is treated confidentially. We only publish aggregate data and will not share any of your business details with anyone. If you have any further questions, please reach out to the Research team: Make sure to log in to your VC4A account before starting the survey.
