More than 90% of startups fail in the first year. Even the fail rate is high for startups incubated in Silicon Valley. The reason? Getting the mechanics of startups right from the first shot. This includes  [1] coming up with a proper business problem, [2] understanding the market (the customers), and [3] developing a value proposition so that you don’t get lost in the crowd. The big boo-boos and the hard truths of startup establishment are also lessons to be learnt at the beginning of the journey.

Therefore, to help increase the chances of startup success in Africa, KA Innovate invites you to a virtual webinar, The Mechanics of Startups: Getting It Right the First Time. The event will attract almost all ABE Initiative scholars (both in Japan or Africa), African startup founders, Japanese investors, guests from JICA and/or JICE, and any other relevant stakeholders.
