Crafted by a team of seasoned African founders and venture capitalists, the "How to Startup" Fellowship promises an immersive learning experience, distinct from conventional entrepreneurship education.

By embracing a dynamic approach that integrates live learning sessions and practical strategies, the fellowship aims to foster a deeper understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities within the African startup ecosystem.

Through this collaborative effort, CatalyzU and Future Africa strive to nurture a new generation of resilient and impactful entrepreneurs poised to drive sustainable growth across the continent.
