Ampion is an organization dedicated to supporting young Africans creating innovative start-ups that are driving social and economic impact in their local communities. We foster innovation in Africa through engagement with the public and private sector, building strategic collaborations to enable the tech ecosystem and all its players.
In the past six years, Ampion facilitated the foundation of more than 80 start-ups in 17 African countries in diverse fields such as healthcare, mobile, agriculture, water and renewable energy.
An acceleration program for promising African entrepreneurs & startups:
Our projects in Africa to amplify entrepreneurship
The Venture Bus travelled across 16 countries with a total of 500 aspiring entrepreneurs from 37 countries.
We designed the first health-tech startup accelerator with Merck in Nairobi, Kenya.
Africa Code Week empowered 1.3 million youth with basic coding skills across 35 African countries.
We curated a match-making process with Impact Investors and Social Entrepreneurs.
I took part in the first acceleration program by Ampion. This is what gave me the courage to create my company. I now have 13 employees.
