with local entrepreneurs so that they can grow
their businesses and create jobs
African Solutions to Local Problems
African Entrepreneur Collective (AEC) believes young people will change their communities for the better. We believe in lasting solutions.
At AEC, we support African entrepreneurs to build their skills, expand their networks, and grow their businesses so that they may employ others. Entrepreneurship is a backbone to a thriving economy, and can unlock pathways to greater resources, dignity, and innovation.
THE FUTURE IS AFRICAN
AEC’s vision is an Africa with low unemployment, where young people and refugees are engaged, where communities have access to relevant innovations for self-determination, and where African solutions are unleashed to solve African problems.
FOCUS ON EXISTING ENTREPRENEURS
Entrepreneurs who have already demonstrated viability are most prepared to take the next step of growth and job creation. AEC supports entrepreneurs with micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
REMOVE BARRIERS TO GROWTH
As businesses grow to scale, entrepreneurs face additional challenges of management, access to expensive capital, and navigating new regulations. AEC offers access to affordable capital, networks, and technology tools to entrepreneurs.
DEVELOP ENTREPRENEUR CAPACITY
The skills it takes to start a business aren’t always the skills it takes to grow a business. AEC provides strategic consulting and practical training to equip entrepreneurs with the skills needed for growth.
