Injini EdTech Changemakers in Africa Grants

Do you have a technology-driven or technology-enabled innovation that could improve educational outcomes in Africa?

Are you looking to take your early-stage startup to the next level?

If yes, then apply for the Injini's Incubation Programme Cohort 4.

Injini is now accepting applications for their next cohort of EdTech changemakers in Africa.

If applicants are one of the selected Cohort 4 startups, applicants will participate in a five-month incubation programme that will take place both in Cape Town, South Africa and in their home market, where the team will support applicants remotely.


The Cohort 4 Incubation Programme will be made up of three phases.

  • Phase 1 is set to begin in mid-March 2020 and will take place in Cape Town, South Africa. 1–2 decision-making members of their startup’s founding team will join us for an expenses-paid* stay in the Mother City for a period of six weeks.

    Applicants will be expected to attend a number of business training workshops, engage with industry experts in 1:1 sessions and build a relationship with their mentor, who will support applicants through the duration of the programme.

  • Phase 2 will begin the moment applicants leave Cape Town and head back to applicants home market. During this 12-week period, applicants will be expected to apply the learnings from Phase 1 to applicants business on-the-ground, while the Injini team supports applicants remotely — they may even pop in to visit some of applicants on their home turf!
  • Phase 3 will commence back in Cape Town in July 2020, marking the final leg of the incubation programme.

    This four-week stretch will give us the chance to tie up loose ends and make sure applicants EdTech startup is ready for post-programme growth and possible investment. * Injini covers the cost of international and domestic return flights to Cape Town, accommodation for the duration of Phase 1 and 2 and extends basic living stipends to subsidise the higher cost of living in Cape Town compared to other African cities.

    These expenses are only covered for founders who are not already based in Cape Town.

    All entrepreneurs are expected to cover their own food and in-country transportation costs, although Injini will occasionally sponsor group meals and social events.
