Future Fund for Education is dedicated to African-led solutions, and to learning from and partnering with experts in the region. By coupling our expertise in entrepreneurship with AL for Education’s knowledge of the education sector in Africa, we create enhanced conditions for innovative solutions to education. We're building a network of innovators who will increase access to education, improve the quality of learning and ensure that graduates leave school with the skills they need to excel in the high growth economies of Africa.
When we partner with entrepreneurs and their ventures, our investment strategy goes beyond simply offering financial support. Together, FFE and ALforEducation provide multi-year technical assistance, mentorship and knowledge sharing, as well as capital. Integral to our approach is to build an ecosystem of game-changing African education entrepreneurs by convening them, digitally and physically, so they can maximize their impact through long-term collaboration.
We have selected 11 Growth Lab graduates to join in the ALforEducation accelerator program, which provides leadership development and capacity-building support over a period of up to three years.
Our founding cohort of entrepreneurs were selected from a pool of applicants from 18 countries and a variety of education sub-sectors. They represent ambitious and creative approaches to learning.
