COME AND ENGAGE WITH TOP SERIES A-READY STARTUPS FROM ACROSS FRANCOPHONE AFRICA
L’Afrique Excelle collaborates with leading Francophone Africa-focused investors to select and vet companies participating in the program. Interested investors have the opportunity to become official investment partners and get early access to the investment pipeline.
A wider investor community is invited to meet our 10 Series A ready startups from across Francophone Africa presenting their businesses during Viva Tech, May 16-18 in Paris.
ALL of our portfolio companies: have current revenues, have previously received outside investment, benefited from 6 months of expert mentoring to prepare them to meet with serious investors. Most companies are seeking US$250,000 to $5 million in Series A funding.
The L’Afrique Excelle program is the Francophone edition following the successful 2017 XL Africa pan-African acceleration program. Since the completion of the first edition of XL Africa, half of the portfolio has secured almost $18M in funding.
