ATSF, African Tech Startup Forum 2024, is set to reveal its first cohort of 160 Tech Startups from 8 African countries.


These tech start-ups are coached by industry leaders and networked with other successful startups, and investors.

About ATSF

ATSF is a Program designed to prepare, equip, and connect African tech ventures with local and international opportunities. Note that it takes place virtually and on-site. Also, it aims to showcase the outstanding tech innovations emerging from Africa and provide them with the platform to thrive.

Additionally, it ensures collaboration with experts from Africa and around the globe, creating an ecosystem that nurtures and boosts tech ventures.

Another pivotal goal of the program is to seek out and highlight women-owned tech companies. This is done with the goal of having at least 50% of the strong African women cohorts show their incredible range of tech skills. ATSF was born of a collaboration between Ndarama Works and Korea Startup Forum. 

It is supported by a leading tech incubation training partner, UVU Africa. Korea-Africa Economic Cooperation (KOAFEC) funds the forum. A Trust Fund through the African Development Bank (AfDB)’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab. 

Programs Embedded In The ATSF Program

The incubation program, a cornerstone of the ATSF program, provides a nurturing environment for early-stage tech startups. This allows the startups to gain access to specialized resources, mentorship, and collaborative workspaces. Moreover, it provides necessary teachings on growth for starting firms. 

Also, the B2B matchmaking platform within the Forum promotes strategic connections between startups and established businesses. Alternatively, the Investor Sourcing facet connects promising startups with potential investors eager to support groundbreaking ventures. 

Application To the ATSF Program

ATSF is currently accepting applications for the inaugural cohort. It comprises 160 outstanding entrepreneurs, including startups and Entrepreneurial Support Organizations (ESOs). However, applications close on 10, 2024. 

A second cohort of 20 businesses will be chosen from the first cohort and will advance their growth through a study tour to South Korea. Additionally, they are allowed to attend the COME UP KOREA event in December 2024.

ATSF is still looking for applicants from tech innovators from Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Morocco, Rwanda, and South Africa. Particularly all tech sectors can access this offer, especially AGTech, FinTech, HealthTech, GameTech, EdTech, RetailTech, and GovTech.
