Ampion Venture is a profit and impact driven company builder with the goal to develop and grow innovative business models in in the fields of agriTech, EnergyTech and FinTech in Africa. We support the world’s strongest entrepreneurs through investment, operational and strategic support in establishing sustainable start-ups that generate revenue and create jobs to revolutionize Africa’s business ecosystem.
Agriculture is Africa’s largest economic sector, representing more than $100 billion annually. However, experts estimate, sub-Saharan Africa alone requires additional annual investments of as much as $50 billion to make the agricultural system work better.
Ampion Ventures is dedicated to improving the productivity and efficiency of agriculture in Africa by collaborating with AgriTech entrepreneurs to develop innovative technological methods that enable farmers to increase their yields and access more markets.
Africa’s banking sector has grown rapidly in the last decade, however around 330 million adult Africans, approximately 80 percent of the continent’s population, lack access to formal financial services and remain unbanked.
To address this problem, Ampion’s Ventures mission is to support the development of FinTech startups in Africa to develop mobile-banking solutions for the massive unbanked population on the continent.
Energy is an essential factor for the reduction of poverty and economic growth for any country, yet two out of every three people in sub-Saharan Africa live without electricity. Major sectors like agriculture, education, communication, and technology all require consistent and cost-effective energy to spur development and improve the lives of the vast majority of the population.
Ampion Ventures is committed to collaborating with early stage EnergyTech start-ups to utilize the vast amount of the continent’s renewable energy potential to provide services that help communities gain access to clean and affordable energy.
