LAUNCH AFRICA DISRUPTS THE MARKET TO BECOME PAN-AFRICA’S MOST ACTIVE EARLY-STAGE VC FUND

  
From left to right: Co-founder Janade du Plessis (in white sneakers); Margaret O’Connor(Chairperson of the Launch Africa Board) and co-founder Zach George.
  • Launched in July 2020, Launch Africa Ventures(‘Launch Africa”) has disrupted the market to become the most active early-stage Pan-African venture capital (“VC”) fund.
  • At the end of March 2022, its inaugural fund, Launch Africa Ventures Fund 1 (“Fund1”),closed at US$36.3 million, with investments from 238 retail and institutional investors in 40 countries.
  • Following the successful closure, Fund 1 announced its 100th investment at the end of May 2022, with $24 million invested in 108 early-stage tech and tech-enabled companies across 20 African countries.
In what most would describe as an audacious move, Launch Africa was established in July 2020, at the height of Covid-19, and had its first close in September 2020. The pandemic created a landscape that encouraged innovation and technological adoption at a speed once thought impossible, triggering business opportunities for African start-ups across technology industry verticals.

As a result, companies in the Launch Africa portfolio saw accelerated revenue growth and network effects during this period with the adoption of digital financial services, open banking, telemedicine, remote learning, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), digital identity management, and e-commerce across Africa.

Within 20monthsofits first close, the Pan-African VC fund has become widely known as a disruptor of the model for early-stage tech investments on the African continent. This was achieved by leveraging extensive ecosystem partnerships and trust networks with founders across Africa and investors around the globe.

Launch Africa’s partners believe that they have a critical role to play in developing and equipping tomorrow’s leaders today. With a focus on investing in the next generation of African technology start-ups, most of Launch Africa’s portfolio founders and their employees are 35 years of age and younger.

In addition to a focus on investing in the next generation of African tech leaders, diversity and inclusion are central to the Launch Africa investment ethos. To date, Fund 1 has invested in 91% African and 20% female co-founders.

Launch Africa is the brainchild of Zachariah (“Zach”) George and Janade du Plessis, both venture capital pioneers.

Zach completed his studies at the world-renowned Indian Institute of TechnologyMadras (I.I.T Madras) and graduate school at Stanford University whereafter he became a Wall Street bulge-bracket investment banker. He proceeded to become co-founder ofthe Barclays RiseGrowth Accelerator programmeand Startupbootcamp Afritech, two of the most significant accelerator programs on the African continent.

Part of the Barclays Accelerator, Rise offersan intensive start-upprogramme, designed to capture, shape and scale the next generation of innovative fintech businesses, whileStartupbootcamp Afritech is a Pan-African accelerator program that invests and grows innovative and scalable startups across Africa. Zach is also one of the most prominent Angel investors in African technology ventures.

Janade, a University of Cape Town (UCT) and Harvard Business School graduate, was the former Chief Investment Officer of the African Development Bank as well as the Head of Venture Capital at one of South Africa’s leading banks. He founded Abrazo Capital, a unique investment partner and capital management firm focused on disruptive social impact across Africa, underpinning hispassion for entrepreneurship and uplifting communities.

The two partners are joined on the Launch Africa Board bychairperson Margaret O’Connor – formerly a successful tech entrepreneur with a Silicon Valley exit, who later helped launch MasterCard across several key geographies in Asia. This was followed by a lengthy stint at the Center for Disruptive Technologies (CDT),a network born out of a collaboration between members of the of Singularity University's Global Studies Program and the Singularity Institute of Africa. As partner in CDT, Margaret kick-started CDT's Adventure Capitalist Network, connecting corporate venture capital, angel investors and early-stage VCs to emerging technology start-ups.

The 14-member Launch Africa team is actively supported by more than 30 global advisors, many of whom are leading C-suite executives at large global institutions, bolstering the skill set of Launch Africa’s portfolio founders with regional, product and sector expertise.

We assist the African founders of early-stage tech and tech-enabled companies to focus on what the continent needs right now—the rapid growth of businesses solving real-world problems combined with the creation of high-value jobs in sustainable ventures. We are proud to have helped many founders close their Seed funding rounds in 4-6 weeks, notably faster than the 4-6 months it typically takes for early-stage founders to close rounds in Africa,” saysZach.

LaunchAfrica also facilitates co-investment by its Limited Partners (LPs) through sharing due diligence, waiving fees and absorbing charges for LPs in the Seed and Pre-Series A investmentsled by the fund. To date, LaunchAfrica LPs have co-invested in excess of $14m in LaunchAfrica portfolio companies.

The LaunchAfrica team works with founders and expert advisors to fast-track exitopportunitiesfor investors.” Janade says. “Providing our exit strategy during these challenging times instills investor confidence and brings significant benefits to the African tech ecosystem.

CommerzVentures,a leading German fintech-focused Venture Capital firm, is one of the lead institutional investors in LaunchAfrica Ventures Fund 1. As a sector specialist, CommerzVentures offers a comprehensive network of partners, decision-makers and investors within Fintech and financial services across the European Union, as well as actionable intelligence and advisory.

We are pleased to partner with LaunchAfrica Ventures to invest in some of the most exciting fintech investment opportunities in Africa,” says CommerzVentures Managing Partner, Patrick Meisberger. “LaunchAfrica provides a diversification of risk, returns, and impact byoffering access to early-stage, post-revenue companies across multiple market verticals and geographic regions.

Adapting the lean start-up methodology to early-stage investing, the fund created due diligence systems that captured investment insights from expert advisors and ecosystem partners across Africa to supplement the team’s extensive experience, growing value in tech and tech enabled companies across the continent.

LaunchAfrica Fund 1’s portfolio currently includes 38% Fintech, 16% e-Commerce and Marketplaces, 13% Health-Tech, 12% Logistics and Mobility, 11% Data Analytics/A.I. and 7% Ed-Tech.

Launch Africa is domiciled in Mauritius and administered by the Apex Group – one of the world’s leading fund administrators with over $2 trillion in assets under administration.

SEKONDARI BUNDA YAITAKA DIT KUHAMASISHA MASOMO YA SAYANSI

 

Na Mwandishi Wetu, Mara

MKUU wa shule ya Sekondari Bunda iliyopo Wilaya ya Bunda mkoani Mara, Charles Somba, ameitaka Taasisi ya Teknolojia Dar es Salaam (DIT) kuwa na muendelezo wa programu ya uhamasishaji kuhusu mtoto wa kike kupenda masomo ya Sayansi.

Somba ameyasema hayo alipokuwa anafungua programu ya kuwahamasisha mabinti iliyoratibiwa na kuongozwa na wataalam kutoka DIT iliyofanyika shuleni hapo ikihusisha shule nne za sekondari za Wilaya hiyo ambazo ni shule ya Sekondari Sazila, Rubana na Nyendo Sekondari pamoja na Bunda.

"Naipongeza Taasisi hii, hiki mnachokifanya ni kitu kizuri, maana wakati mwingine tunafundisha hawa lakini wasipoona kwa uhalisia kama ambavyo mmekuja hawaweki bidii ila sasa hata ninyi mabinti mmeona wamama wanasayansi hawa hapa kazi kwenu mjitahidi," alisema.

Aidha, Somba aliiomba DIT kupanua wigo ili kuhakikisha watoto wa kike wanahamasika hata ikiwezekana wanapoingia kidato cha kwanza ili waweze kuwajengea uelewa mapema na hii isiwe Bunda pekee, ikiwezekana fanyeni kila mkoa hata nchi nzima.

Mratibu wa program ya uhamasishaji Dk. Triphonia Ngailo alisema, kwa sasa idadi ya watoto wa kike wanaohitimu masomo ya Sayansi bado ipo chini ambapo takwimu zinaonesha wanawake wanasayansi ni 21% wakati wanaume ni asilimia 79% hivyo DIT kupitia ufadhili wa Mradi wa EASTRIP wakaanzisha programu hiyo ili wawape moyo kuwa inawezekana kwa pamoja wawatie moyo na wapambane kuhakikisha idadi inaongezeka kwa kuwa Serikali inawajali na imeweka mazingira wezeshi ili kuwapatieni ninyi elimu ili muweze kunufaika na fursa zilizopo kwenye masomo ya sayansi.

Naye Mwalimu Samora Laizer wa Bunda Sekondari amefurahishwa na program hiyo kwa kuwa inaleta uhalisia wa kile kinachofundishwa.

"Hili ni jambo jema maana wakati mwingine ukifundishwa tu bila kuona uhalisia inapoteza nguvu ila kama walivyosikia leo itawaongezea nguvu" alisema Laizer

Aidha, Mwalimu Fibe Musa wa Rubana Sekondari ameishauri Taasisi kujipanga zaidi kwa kuwa jambo hilo zuri na linawasaidia zaidi hasa wanafunzi wakishahitimu masomo wanakuwa na mwanga wa kuchagua fani wanazozipenda.

Stakeholders hail new Education Plan, as TCU Okays

 

 Higher education stakeholders have praised a new government plan to encourage universities to set up technical education campuses, saying the move will create a pool of competent graduates in the wake of an increasingly competitive and dynamic labour market.

“We commend the government for its plan to expand the scope of technical education by allowing universities to offer competence-based courses,” Ms Angela Mungai said in an interview with this correspondent on a wide range of issues related to higher education in Tanzania.

Stakeholders’ comments came following Minister for Education, Science and Technology Prof Adolf Mkenda’s statement in Parliament recently. The minister said the government planned to encourage universities and higher education institutions to set up technical education campuses as part of a long-term strategy to enhance the provision of competence-based technical education in the country.

Winding up his ministry’s budget estimates recently, Prof Mkenda told the National Assembly that the government would encourage universities and higher education institutions to open technical campuses for certificate and diploma in different regions across the country.

Among other things, according to the minister, the move intends to promote the provision of technical education in universities and other higher education institutions --with a broader view to imparting to students technical skills needed in the labour market.

In fact, the minister was responding to long time concerns by Members of Parliament (MPs) and higher education stakeholders, who had on various occasions expressed a need to allow universities and other higher education institutions to offer technical education and produce competent graduates with technical skills required in the rapidly changing labour market.

Higher education stakeholders described the latest government plan as “a step forward” towards enhancing the provision of competence-based education and thus increase the number of competent graduates in Tanzania in the face of stiff competition in the labour market.

“The labour market requires graduates who can do the job and not just holders of degree certificates with flying colours. We are happy to see that the government is now committed to expanding the scope of technical education up to university level,” said Mr Mohamed Unju, an expert in higher education based in Dodoma.

But stakeholders expressed doubts that  implementation of the new government plan will remain “a mere dream” if the regulator of Universities—Tanzania Commission for Universities (TCU) will not review restrictive guidelines barring universities from offering technical education programmes (diploma and certificates).

 

Interviewed, one higher education stakeholder, Joseph Mfutakamba cited specific TCU guidelines 1.5.2 which “restricts universities to offer NACTE accredited technical education (certificate, diploma) programmes that are being offered in a regular middle level institution operating in Tanzania and guideline 1.5.4 which restrict Universities to start new competence-based Technical programmes (certificate and diploma) are might not have been listed in the initial accreditation documents.”

 

“It’s time for TCU to review restrictive guidelines and allow both technical colleges and universities to offer competence-based technical programmes in order to go at par with dynamics of today’s competitive labour markets, new government education plans and Academic freedom for Universities,” added Mfutakamba.

 

When contacted, TCU spokesperson  Jorlin Kagaruki said “...TCU guidelines will not be a stumbling block for universities and higher learning institutions wishing to open technical education campuses.  It is up to the universities (public and private ones) to strategize on how they are going to implement new plan announced by the Minister Pro. Mkenda”

“TCU has no problem with Universities wanting to create or construct technical education campuses as part of the implementation of the plan announced by the Minister in the Parliament on the need to sensitize higher learning institutions to set up technical education campuses in different regions countrywide….,” said Kagaruki.

Na Dotto Mwaibale, Ikungi.


MKUU wa Wilaya ya Ikungi mkoani Singida, Jerry Muro ametoa onyo kwa mtu yeyote wilayani hapa kutokwamisha mchakato wa utoaji wa chanjo ya polio kitaifa utakaoanza Aprili 28 mwaka huu unaotarajiwa kuwafikia watoto 62,155 na atakayebainika akifanya hivyo hatua kali zitachukuliwa dhidi yake.

Muro alitoa onyo hilo wakati akizungumza na maafisa mbalimbali, viongozi wa dini, wadau wa maendeleo na timu ya wataalamu watakaoratibu zoezi hilo wilayani hapa ambapo alihamasisha wananchi wote kujitokeza bila kukosa wakati zoezi hilo litakapoanza.

"Sisi hapa Ikungi tupo tayari mpaka sasa  tumepokea jumla ya chanjo 71,400 na tumesambaza dozi 70,000 katika vituo vya kutolea afya na kuwa watalifanya kwenye vijiji vyote 101 na zaidi ya vitongoji 500" alisema Muro.

Alisema tayari wamewapanga wataalamu kwenye vituo 140 na watafika kwenye maeneo yote na kila mtoto aliopo kwenye wilaya hiyo watahakikisha anapata chanjo hiyo.

Muro alisema kwamba miundombinu yote pamoja na timu ya wataalamu kwa ajili ya kuwezesha ufanikishaji wa zoezi hilo yamekamilika kwa asilimia 100.

Aidha Muro alitoa mwito kwa wazazi wilayani humo kuacha tabia ya kuwapeleka watoto wao kwa waganga wa kienyeji kwani hawana uwezo wa kutoa chanjo ya polio badala yake wawapeleke kwenye vituo vya afya wakiwapeleka huko wanaweza kupigwa na ugonjwa  huo na hata kupata kifo.

Muro aliwaomba wazazi hao kuanzia Aprili 28 hadi Mei Mosi kuwa ni kipindi cha mzazi kumpeleka mtoto wake kituo cha afya na yale maeneo yaliopo  pembezoni kabisa mwa wilaya hiyo watayafikia kupitia kampeni ya nyumba kwa nyumba.
Muro alitumia nafasi hiyo kupiga marufuku tabia ya wazazi ambao kila wakipewa elimu na kuambiwa umuhimu wa kuwapeleka watoto wao vituo vya afya kwa ajili ya kupewa chanjo wamekuwa mstari wa mbele kukahidi kwa sababu ya imani na mila potofu hivyo kuanzia jana mzazi yeyote watakaye mbaini anakendwa kinyume na maagizo ya kitaifa ya zoezi hilo  atakamatwa na kuchuliwa hatua kali za kisheria na kuwa mfano kwa wengine wote katika wilaya hiyo.
"Tumepata taarifa kuwa kuna watu wamejipanga kukwamisha zoezi ili sasa mimi nawaambia kuwa kabla ya kuanza kukwama sisi watakwama wao na waomba watu wote wenye imani potofu dhidi ya chanjo hii watuache kwanza tufanye kazi nipo hapa kwa ajili ya kuwatoa mashaka wananchi wote wa wilaya ya Ikungi kuwa chanjo hizi ni salama zimedhibitishwa na wataalamu wa afya wa kimataifa na hapa nchini" alisema Muro.
Kaimu Mganga Mkuu wa Wilaya ya Ikungi,  Oliva Njoka alisema wamepokea maagizo kutoka wizarani kuwa kunakampeni ya kitaifa ya chanjo hiyo kwa nchi nzima ambapo watachanjwa watoto walio na umri chini ya miaka mitano na kuwa tayari wamekwisha anza maandalizi kwa kupata mafunzo ngazi ya halmashauri kwa timu ya uendeshaji na pia watatoa mafunzo kwa wale wahudumu watakao kuwa wakichanja.
Mratibu wa Elimu ya Afya na Uhamasishaji Wilaya ya Ikungi Braison Shoo alisema hivi sasa wapo kwenye kampeni ambayo wanatarajia kuianza Aprili 28 hadi Mei Mosi ya chanjo ya matone kwa watoto waliochini ya miaka mitano ambapo aliwaomba wananchi wote wa wilaya hiyo kujitokeza kwa wingi kupeleka watoto wao kupata chanjo.
Alisema lengo la chanjo hiyo ni kuongeza kinga katika jamii baada ya kutokea mlipuko wa ugonjwa huo nchi jirani ya Malawi hivyo aliendelea kuwasihi wananchi kujitokeza kwa wingi wakati wa zoezi la  chanjo.
Mwenyekiti wa Halmashauri ya Wilaya ya Ikungi, Ally Mwanga na Mwenyekiti wa Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) wilayani humo,  Mika Likapakapa walisema watakwenda kuwahimiza madiwani na viongozi wa chama na serikali ngazi za vijiji na kata kwa ajili ya kuhamasisha zoezi hilo ili kuwafikia wananchi wengi zaidi.
