Injini EdTech Incubator Programme 2019 for EdTech Entrepreneurs in Africa (Fully Funded to Cape Town, South Africa)


DEADLINE: 17 March, 2019

The Injini Cohort 3 programme will launch in May 2019. For this, 8 start-ups from across Africa will join the programme for 4 months during which we will deliver workshops, mentoring and networking as well as technology, research and dedicated support from the Injini team.

As part of this revised programme, each start-up will be eligible for a ZAR 100k grant (ca. $7.5k), after which the cohort will compete for follow-on equity investment of up to $75k per startup.

For the first time ever, the Injini programme will be opened up to non-profits.

Eligibility Criteria

  • They actively encourage applications from any African country.


Everyone in the program will be covered for flights to and from Cape Town, for accommodation here, and receive a small allowance for extra living costs incurred while in Cape Town.

Guiding Principles

  1. Africa leads, not follows
    • The greatest challenge & opportunity in EdTech lies in Africa – it will produce the greatest innovations
  2. Grassroots ideas, global impact
    • It will be teachers & entrepeneurs – not big bureaucracies – who realise technology’s potential in education
  3. Empower teachers, not replace them
    • They will help teachers deepen & widen impact, not try (and fail) to make them obsoleteEvidence-driven, with a laser focus on results
  4. Evidence-driven, with a laser focus on results
    • They should reject business-as-usual & embrace new ideas, but pay very close attention to the evidence of what works to improve education
