Who we are

We are growth frontiers. We focus on growing successful enterprises, innovations and entrepreneurs in Africa through business acceleration, strategic advice and access to investments.

GrowthAfrica is a leading acceleration and growth partner for African entrepreneurs and companies scaling their business in and across Africa. We provide business growth programmes for high-potential entrepreneurs as well as design and deliver activities for partners and clients in support of entrepreneurs.

We focus on growing ambitious and scalable African ventures and SMEs into successful enterprises through business acceleration, strategic advice and access to investments.

Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Nairobi, GrowthAfrica has grown into an experienced African business and impact accelerator and advisory firm. It has worked with more than 2,000 growing African businesses, and since 2012 accelerated more than 200 African ventures.

Today GrowthAfrica has own offices in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zambia and Malawi. More offices will be added in the strategy to become pan African and serve ventures across the continent.
