Case study on the proof of concept funds: lessons from Kenya's start-ups

Africa is witnessing a surge in start-ups as attention shifts from churning job-seeking graduates, to job creators. Studies have shown that millennials are an entrepreneurial generation with as many as 67% aiming to start a business as opposed to climbing the corporate ladder to become CEO. The result is a rapidly expanding start-up scene with innovations hubs being created in major African cities such as Capetown, Accra, Lagos, Gaborone and Nairobi among others.
