Applications are open for JASIRI Talent Investor Program 2021. It is the one-year, fully-funded full-time Talent Investor for aspiring entrepreneurs. By applying you are embarking on a journey of self-discovery as our Selection Process seeks to challenge and inspire you to show us what makes you the next high-impact entrepreneur who could come up with Africa’s next big market-creating innovation. JASIRI Talent Investor Program challenges you to apply and prepare yourself to commit to this process and to prepare to take a year out of your life to ideate, validate, prototype, and form a new venture with equally ambitious co-founders.

JASIRI, supported by the Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy (Gray Philanthropy), believes that high-impact entrepreneurial success requires patient, holistic, and context-specific support.

Our program will take participants from idea generation, validation, prototyping to venture creation with a focus on Market-Creating Innovations.
