Who are we?

New Venture Africa is a new social enterprise with a fresh outlook on social and economic development. We offer strategy consulting services to high potential, socially focused start-up companies in East Africa.

The businesses we work with are all for profit, and we believe that if they scale and secure investment, they can go on to have incredible impact on their customers and in their markets. We work with entrepreneurs that are using new technology and innovation to solve problems in the region that have been around for years.

What are we looking for?

We recruit top tier professionals that have worked in consulting, finance, tech or big business and place them into high potential start-up companies for two week periods.

Our teams then deliver vital strategy work that helps companies scale and crucially, become more attractive to investors.

Keen to get involved?

Our two week engagements offer a unique way to gain challenging first hand emerging markets experience whilst supporting exciting, tech enabled start-up companies who are desperately in need of strategic support.

Programmes cost £2,500 which covers accommodation, work permit, travel in country and breakfast but excludes flights. In the past lots of our consultants have secured sponsorship for the trips from their employers so we advise asking for some help with the costs!

Our September programme runs 26th Sept – 7th Oct 2016 and we still have a few places to fill, so if you\’re interested in getting involved, please send over an application by July 30th.

For more information or to get in touch, please visit www.newventureafrica.com.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
The NVA team.
