Afrique Créative, in a few words
Afrique Créative is an acceleration programme financed by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and implemented by a consortium led by the Belgian non-profit organization Africalia with I&P Conseil from the group Investisseurs et Partenaires (I&P) (a pioneering group in impact investment in Africa), Zhu Culture (a cultural engineering consultancy based in Senegal) and Bayimba Foundation (a cultural production structure based in Uganda).
This programme aims to support African cultural and creative businesses in their development to maximise their impact locally, nationally, and internationally.
In September 2019, the first call for applications led to the selection of nine entrepreneurs from the four programme countries (Burkina Faso, Morocco, Uganda, and Senegal).
For this second edition, the call for applications is open to 9 countries: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Senegal, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Morocco, and Tunisia. This second edition will also rely on the expertise of local Entrepreneurship Support Structures (ESS) to support the acceleration of cultural and creative enterprises in their country.
