The Deep Dive Africa program aims to link investors from all over the world with 40 investment-ready firms from Ghana, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Kenya.
Impact Hub and the Growth Africa Foundation’s Deep Dive Africa project, which connects early-stage investors with African businesses, is back for a second year.
Deep Dive Africa’s inaugural successful edition in 2019 saw Accra and Lagos entrepreneurs raise a total of $500k in investment as a consequence of their participation.
Make-IT in Africa, a project run by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, is funding the initiative (BMZ).
Deep Dive Africa II will immerse investors in the startup ecosystem across the four nations and assist selected startups in preparing to pitch to investors once again.
Deep Dive Africa this year will focus on four cities: Accra, Lagos, Kigali, and Nairobi. Investors will be taken on a tour of each city’s startup environment. From February 23 to 25, 2022, a final 3-day virtual event will bring together investors and companies.
Between November 22nd and December 5th, 2021, startups can apply. Between January and February 2022, selected firms will receive investor-focused coaching, due diligence boot camps, and pitch training.
The deadline for applications is December 5th.
