Startup Factory Ethiopia in Detail.



We challenge the existing ways of doing business with new ideas, approaches and methods with the aim of launching new businesses that create jobs and generate value.



We assemble teams with the skills; expertise and gumption to focus on a problem worth solving, validate a business model and find real customers. We provide the oversight, key resources and supporting infrastructure for success.



As a team of experienced investors and entrepreneurs, we understand what a scalable venture looks like.  We only launch companies that we believe have a very large target market, a product or service with a concrete competitive advantage, and an operationally and financially scalable business model.
