We believe entrepreneurship is a key driver for the continent’s continued development. Entrepreneurship should be a main driver in Africa’s economic growth, in particular the high growth high potential ventures that introduce important innovations and disruptive business models. This new breed of company offers a significant source of employment and provides an important stream of income for future generations. These ventures can contribute up to two thirds of national income and provide the foundation for a stable middle class. They help form strong communities and are a powerful force for creating opportunity. We believe that the ventures that are part of VC4A play a significant role in building economic stability and sustainability for the future. As a community initiated organization we work every day to improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem and to support their growth.
Our inspiration comes from the entrepreneurs bold enough to start great companies that have the potential to change the world.
VC4A was started as a networking group in the spring of 2008 and has grown organically into what is now a thriving community dedicated to a world of inspired entrepreneurship.
