VC4Africa launches new partner tool to support organizations targeting African startups

VC4Africa-PartnersEvent organizers, competition organizers, corporations, foundations, accelerators, incubators, investment funds and other startup ecosystem players can now publish branded promo pages on the VC4Africa platform and use these pages to launch their campaigns and collect applications from entrepreneurs across Africa. Partner Pages are a great way to launch and promote events, programs and campaigns and to engage with the VC4Africa community in an interactive way.

Organizations who were among the first to use VC4Africa’s Partner Pages for sourcing applications include HIVOS and the Cameroon Angels Network (CAN). Rebecca Enonchong of CAN explains: ‘Cameroon Angels Network is a very new organization. When we launched our #YouCAN campaign, we turned to the VC4Africa platform. We were able to create and manage the entire application process with just a few clicks. The support from VC4Africa was priceless.’

Leo Soldaat of HIVOS, launching the Green Pioneer Accelerator Program in partnership with VC4Africa, adds: ‘VC4Africa increasingly serves as an entry point to the ecosystem of African entrepreneurship. VC4Africa is a valuable partner, building a key resource for the ecosystem.’ The tool will also be used for the DEMO Africa 2015 applications process – selecting Africa’s best tech innovations to launch at a big annual event.\
