Growth Lab

We at the Future Fund for Education are pleased to launch the Growth Lab, in partnership with AL For Education, African Leadership Academy’s education network.

The Growth Lab is a 6-week virtual workshop for high-potential African education entrepreneurs who have established a promising organization and want to increase their impact.

AL For Education and FFE share a common mission and long track record of partnership. With this closer collaboration, we are able to serve a wider pipeline of education entrepreneurs on the continent, who will ensure that all Africans can maximize their potential and live meaningful, purpose-driven lives.

Applications are now open for the Growth Lab, and we would love to receive your application and/or your recommendations for suitable applicants. We welcome applications from exceptional African entrepreneurs who:

  • Are already transforming education in their home communities.
  • Have plans to double or triple their impact in the next 1-3 years.
  • Would benefit from access to capacity building support in education, management, strategic planning, and fundraising.

We will offer a stipend of US$1,500 upon completion of the program, rewarding edupreneurs for the time invested in planning the future of their enterprise. Please see the flier linked here for more information.

Applications close on June 4, 2021. The application form is linked here. (
