Jasiri Growth Accelerator announces launch its 3rd Cohort, inviting Innovative startups from Kenya and Rwanda.

The JGA is an industry-agnostic, Eastern Africa startup venture-building program that invests in early-stage startups operating in Kenya and Rwanda, with demonstrated product-market fit and led by a strong founding team.

JGA is  seeking early-stage startups with the potential for high growth and evidence of traction in serving – a large, unserved, or under-served market.

Supported by the Allan and Gill Gray Philanthropies Eastern Africa (AGGP EA), the Jasiri Growth Accelerator aims to de-risk promising startups and prepare them for funding by focusing on business concept refinement, commercialization, and growth.

“In the third cohort of the Jasiri Growth Accelerator, we are excited to invite early-stage startups with potential for scale to apply. We are seeking ventures led by ambitious, dedicated, and impact-driven co-founding teams. Our commitment through the JGA is to work alongside the founding teams to support the achievement of their growth objectives while preparing them for further investment.”

Aline Kabanda, East Africa Regional Director, Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropies Rwanda.
The JGA differentiates itself by offering a highly personalized support structure to each startup.

The program will run predominantly virtually for ten months, providing flexibility, with occasional in-person attendance required for specific sessions.

Selected startups are provided with a $75,000 investment to support their growth.

This includes a tailored split between direct funding towards working capital and funded strategic advisory to address key development areas and growth priorities for startups, with the ultimate aim of attaining seed-stage investor readiness and access.

This support helps de-risk ventures, making them attractive to future investors. Please click here for more details on eligibility requirements.

Applications for the 3rd Cohort open on May 6, 2024, and will close on May 31, 2024. Interested startups can apply through the following link:
