Dollars

Village Capital, a company that finds, trains, and invests in entrepreneurs solving real-world problems, has announced it will invest in FinTech startups in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Through the FinTech: Africa 2016 program, the company will identify and support the next generation of fintech entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa.

These entrepreneurs are expected to have startups that are increasing financial health and improving livelihoods for low-income populations.

Two top entrepreneurs, selected by their peers in the program, will be offered US$50,000 in pre-committed capital investment from VilCap Investments.

The program will hold on three separate dates – December 6-9, 2016; January 24-27, 2017 and February 21-24, 2014 – at venues that’ll be announced later.

Interested entrepreneurs are expected to apply by September 20, 2016. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, as such early registration is encouraged.

The program is organized in partnership with the MasterCard Foundation, DOEN Foundation, and Venture Capital for Africa (VC4A).
