We are innovators scaling ventures to unlock the full potential of our people.

We are signatories of the Harambe Declaration, who have pledged “to work together as one to fulfill the dream of our generation.”

We are visionaries who believe that “the Africa our generation desires can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible. It is ours.”

Culture
Our culture is what binds our entrepreneurs, investors, and partners together – a meritocratic collaboration built on trust and driven by a shared desire to scale our impact. Our culture permeates every aspect of our work and is reaffirmed each year with the ceremonial signing of the Harambe Declaration.
Programs
In partnership with a select coterie of investors, universities, family offices, and corporations, Harambe tailors programs that leverage the best practices and insights within our Alliance to address the needs of African entrepreneurs.
Seed Fund
Over the course of our first decade, Harambeans spawned a series of tech-enabled ventures across Africa which have collectively attracted over $300 million from investors such as Google Ventures, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and Alibaba. To build on this success, Cisco capitalized the Harambe Seed Fund (HSF) — a rule-based, co-investment vehicle which enables Harambe to invest in high performing teams and direct global investors to the next generation of high growth African entrepreneurs.
