Let's face the facts

In Kenya alone, a staggering 75% of startups don't make it past their first anniversary. And those that do often struggle to reach the three-year mark. There's a clear gap in entrepreneur support programs that address these challenges head-on. That's where Ansa Africa steps in, ready to make a difference.

We've done our homework and identified the major obstacles holding businesses back in this dynamic market. Lack of access to crucial data and market insights. A sea of undifferentiated products. A lack of clear strategy and planning. Insufficient capital to scale. Misjudgment of market demand. Ineffective marketing. Poor product-market fit. Talent shortages. And yes, even weak organizational structures (we've got our eye on that one!).

At Ansa Africa, we don't just identify problems; we provide tailored solutions. Our venture building programs cover a wide range of expertise to address these challenges head-on.
