2023 AFRICA TECH VENTURE CAPITAL (BY PARTECH)

There is no way around it: 2023 was a rough year for the African tech ecosystem. There was a decrease in transactions. The region attracted much less capital, just about half of 2022’s haul. This happened across all stages, all sectors, and all countries. Even more striking, half of the investors disappeared from the market and those who stayed were less active. It’s clearly a good time to pause, take stock of the ecosystem and ponder where it might go next.
