20 African Startups Enter World Bank Group Tech Acceleration Programme

Twenty Francophone African tech startups will participate in the L’Afrique Excelle residency in Mali, a full-week boot camp set to kick off the Francophone edition of the World Bank Group’s XL Africa, tech start-up accelerator.

The entrepreneurs will from March 24 – 30, 2019, have the opportunity to network and learn from leading industry experts, increase their regional visibility and network with potential corporate partners and investors.

L’Afrique Excelle is the francophone adaptation of the popular XL Africa program which seeks to foster a stronger connection between entrepreneurs in Anglophone and Francophone Africa while providing support to those from less developed digital ecosystems, particularly in fragile countries such as the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Togo and Mali.
