African Entrepreneur Collective
- Kigali City
At African Entrepreneur Collective (AEC) we believe that the most pressing problems in Africa have solutions that already exist on the continent; African entrepreneurs know best the needs of their local communities and are constantly creating, testing, and scaling innovative solutions. AEC exists to unlock the power of these entrepreneurs to transform their continent.
AEC is a collection of business accelerators and incubators that offers business education, mentorship, technical support and access to affordable capital to entrepreneurs. To date, we have worked with more than 3000 entrepreneurs who have generated 5,500 new jobs for others in their communities. We have recently launched a new program to support 4,000 refugee entrepreneurs in the next three years.
AEC currently works with entrepreneurs in Rwanda, with plans to expand to Kenya and Uganda in the coming year.
