Contribute to the emergence of digital start-ups

Our tool : I&P Acceleration Technologies

To contribute to the emergence of the first African digital start-ups, Sinergi Burkina participates in the I&P Acceleration Technologies program, and offers seed financing to Burkinabe companies in the digital world.

I&P Accélération Technologies is an initiative of Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P) in partnership with the Agence Française de Développement. In Burkina Faso, Sinergi Burkina implements this program.

Until 2023, this program offers funding and technical assistance to digital startups (or those whose activity is partly related to digital).

This program is an initiative of Investisseurs et Partenaires and is financed by the French Development Agency, which finances, supports and accelerates transitions towards a more just and sustainable world. The I&P Acceleration Technologies program is financed by the Digital Africa seed fund, which is a component of the Choose Africa offer through which the AFD Group is committed to devoting 2.5 billion euros to African start-ups, VSEs and SMEs by 2022.
