At AEEI we invest our experience, skills and
time in African entrepreneurial ecosystems.

AEEI invests into the knowledge, data, networks and impactful activities that entrepreneurs and early-stage investors require to grow both their own financial sustainability and their offerings into Africa’s emerging markets. We do this through conducting research, developing and delivering training, and creating open licensed knowledge products.
