emerging cities and their slums

Urban Fund

Urban Africa Fund

We're backing the next generation of urban startups
for emerging cities and their slums

We’re raising a $25M urban innovation fund to invest into urban startups in emerging cities in Africa.

We’re investing the first $10M across 100 urban startups, aiming to stimulate an ecosystem in this space. We invest an average of $100k into each startup for a 10% equity stake.

 
 

Will this solution make the city better for the many, not just the few?

That’s the driving question
behind every bet we make.
