Applications for Jasiri Talent Investor Cohort 4 are open for impact-driven and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Supported by Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropies (AGGP), Jasiri Talent Investor Cohort 4 seeks young individuals from Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda who would build enterprises that will unlock new markets while solving the most pressing challenges of our time.
Applicants will go through a rigorous competency-based selection process, after which finalists – referred to as Jasiri Fellows – join the Jasiri Talent Investor — a fully-funded 13 months program that will guide Jasiri Fellows from idea generation, validation, prototyping, market entry to venture creation.
The Talent Investor will introduce Jasiri Fellows to equally ambitious co-founders and will support them on an individual, team, and business level.
Since its inception in December 2020, Jasiri Fellows in the program have created 25 ventures which span a wide range of industries such as agriculture, healthcare, affordable housing and fintech.
The program ensures that Jasiri Fellows receive world-class entrepreneurship development support, coaching and business advisory to increase their chances of achieving their entrepreneurial aspirations.
Jasiri CEO Anthony Farr notes, “Jasiri is not just a program but an invitation to a mission toward transforming Africa. We are all about value-driven entrepreneurship and long-term approaches to growing high-impact and life-changing enterprises. Jasiri is a Swahili word meaning brave! In a world where we need more courage, we invite young brave individuals to join our program and create ventures that address the common good”.
