Our mission: Identify promising African startups

MyAfricanStartUp is the first African platform enabling startups to network with media and get to be known.

MyafricanStartup publishes its 2023 selection of "100 promising African startups". MyafricanStartup 100 is a reference tool, read and examined by all professionals in the ecosystem. From 2023, this initiative will be accompanied by a selection of key investors.

The team will sift through the companies over a period of several months to come up with a shortlist of 100 start-ups considered to be the most promising. The choice is highly selective, as we look at a good thousand innovative companies every year. The selected start-ups appear in our annual dossier of "100 innovative African start-ups to invest in".  Our aim with this list is to promote high-potential African start-ups each year to those who are looking for them.
