Google Startups Accelerator Africa 2024 for African Startups

Applications are open for the 2024 cohort of the Google for Startups Accelerator Africa. Seed to Series A tech startups building innovative solutions for Africa are invited to apply. The program offers equity-free support, Google Cloud credits, mentorship, workshops, & a global network.

In the bustling markets and vibrant streets of Senegal, a local startup called Lengo AI is proving that technology can empower even the smallest of businesses. They've created a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps shop owners track sales, manage inventory, and make smarter decisions—all with the help of artificial intelligence. By breaking down barriers to technology, Lengo AI is unlocking new opportunities for entrepreneurs who were previously underserved.

Lengo AI's success is just one example of the wave of innovation sweeping across Africa. From bustling cities to remote villages, startups are tackling the continent's most pressing challenges head-on. They're using technology to transform healthcare, education, finance, and countless other sectors. These startups are not just building businesses; they're building a brighter future for Africa.

We're continually inspired by the ingenuity of startups across Africa, and since 2018, the Google for Startups Accelerator Africa program has been our way of supporting the dynamic tech ecosystem throughout the continent.
