The venture development company is committed to helping to ensure that African founders are provided with the support and expertise needed to scale their startups in the current competitive landscape. Hatch members will receive access to a host of exclusive initiatives designed to support African entrepreneurs as they continue to grow their startups, including curated events, direct access to some of the continent’s most successful entrepreneurs, technical skills development programmes, and open office hours with Founders Factory Africa’s industry experts. There is no specific entry criteria or cap on member numbers, and each application is determined on a case by case basis. The programme is also completely free, with the larger goal of accelerating entrepreneurship and knowledge-sharing across the continent.
