ELISA is an entrepreneurial ecosystem

We exist to counter the perceived challenges of doing business on the continent of Africa. We provide a highly networked and reliable source of entrepreneurial training and support for the development of companies that produce products and technologies or provide services that enable the continent to thrive. Our network of members reenvision Africa’s challenges as a catalyst for innovation. With so many unmet needs the potential for growth on the African continent is limitless. Entrepreneurial success in Africa requires:

A strong entrepreneurial ecosystem bolstering development of suppliers and supply chain infrastructure

A new kind of business leader nurtured by internships, training, mentoring and collaborations

Local development of independent sources of power, water, waste management and other utilities
