StartupAfricaRoadtrip started in 2017 as a collaboration between four friends with extensive expertise in business, technology, and marketing.
Our common vision was to create a cross-border collaborative network, enabling connections and opportunities to the new class of entrepreneurs in emerging countries.
StartupAfricaRoadtrip started in 2017 with a trip to East Africa to meet and discover all the places and actors in which the innovation grows.
In Africa, yes … who would have ever said that? Africa is a vast mistreated continent, often a victim of a single-issue mass media communication and far from the reality of things.
Driven by a great curiosity and desire to know the “real” Africa, we started backpacking for a “unconventional” experience: spending one month in Kampala, the chaotic capital of Uganda, meeting and relating with the actors of the local ecosystem: startups, universities, incubators and accelerators, angel investors.
