Our mission is to bring top talent from all over the world to team up with fast growing start-ups in Africa. We work with African start-ups to provide both short-term programs (winternships and summer internships and gap year internships), remote work, and post-graduate job opportunities on the continent. Afrijob fellows will not only get immersed in a different culture but also gain indispensable work experience that has an immediate impact in Africa.
We aim to increase awareness of the vast entrepreneurial opportunities in Africa. Africa is fast becoming home to a vibrant start-up sector with over 442 active tech hubs and ambitious entrepreneurs creating innovative business models to solve for age-old problems in sectors such as agriculture, financial sectors, healthcare, education, water and energy. Investors are also quickly seeing the value of African start-ups, which received over $168.6 million in funding at the beginning of 2018, surpassing last year’s total of $167.7 million.
