FFA is a venture development and investment company that builds and scales businesses across Africa through our unique approach providing founders access to both capital and our highly skilled team. FFA has already invested in and supported 23 fintech and healthtech entrepreneurs in Africa across Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and aims to build and scale 88 businesses by 2025. We are looking for innovative African AgriTech startups to transform business models and improve the delivery of a range of services to smallholder farmers and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in the agricultural sector. We will consider startups across the agricultural value chain addressing bottlenecks in areas such as productivity, postharvest handling, foodtech, data and information, market access, finance, and supply chain management.
True to our mission of transforming lives, we seek to identify, grow, and scale commercially viable businesses that are also creating societal change. In line with this purpose, we strongly believe that there are innovators who are determined to address challenges that exist in their communities by finding locally relevant solutions that work for them. We would like to give them a platform to enhance and scale across Kenya and beyond. Therefore, we launched the Safaricom Spark Venture Fund to invest and support late-seed, early-growth stage companies with a presence in Kenya, whilst leveraging Safaricom assets to enable the companies to scale.
