Home Grown Solutions (HGS) Accelerator for Pandemic Resilience in Africa

Click here to apply

Deadline: 7th February 2023

We are an acceleration programme focusing on growth and mature stage African healthcare companies, conceptualized in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in a realization of the potential of local private sector solutions to strengthen the continent's pandemic resilience.
The selected companies will receive highly customized advisory support delivered by a world class panel of experts. We will work in collaboration with your team to design and deliver a customized, six-month acceleration roadmap, to support your company's specific growth needs across three key areas: Context specific advisory, investor readiness and matching to strategic partners.

In 2022, we expanded our programme to pan-Africa and had 14 Home Grown Solutions (HGS) across different African countries. In this year, we are also expecting to have diverse healthcare companies across Africa, especially those who are passionate to expand their business across the border and to contribute to socio-economic development of Africa from healthcare perspectives.

We are co-founded by the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) and financially supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

In order to qualify, businesses must:
1. Be a for-profit and qualified company at the growth or mature stage with proven products or services
2. Strengthen Africa's healthcare system
3. Be described as a Home Grown Solution
