African Impact Challenge (AIC) 2024 for Entrepreneurs [ up to $25,000 ]

Inspired by The Prosperity Paradox, African impact Challenge (AIC) is run in different African countries every year. Since launching in 2020, They have built the capacity of 1000+ early-stage African entrepreneurs and funded over 100 of them. This has happened in Ghana (2020), Kenya (2021), Rwanda (2022) and South Africa (2023). In 2022 we also launched our Pan-African Health Entrepreneurship Stream, which now runs annually with the support of Mastercard Foundation.

The challenge starts with a self-paced Pre-incubation phase beginning in April 2024, which leads to the selection of top-performing ventures for funding and incubation. Each top-performing venture will be interviewed and allowed to choose between a non-dilutive grant or a simple agreement of future equity investment. They will also have a chance to build in Toronto during summer 2025.


  • Top performing teams receive up to $25,000 in either grant funding or a simple agreement for future equity (SAFE) investment.
  • They also travel to Toronto the following summer, with all costs covered, to learn and expand their entrepreneurship network.
