Afro Valley Incubators
Afro Valley Business Incubators are a step towards self-reliance for communities. We focus on the empowerment of young entrepreneurs by the acquisition of business skills, financial power and management tools.
AV provides facilities, training, access to funds, and the connections needed for entrepreneurs to help addressing community challenges and generate sustainable economic growth.
Partnering with universities, AV creates databases where academics can research, share their work and actively participate in a thriving African-based knowledge production. ICTs can act as enablers, helping African researchers deal with property rights, and access better information. For example, blockchain makes any research content published in the database immediately patented, and time stamped in a way it cannot be deleted. By funding African universities directly, AV breaks with research agendas issued through targeted funding, and enhances African agency in research and development.
