We facilitate research and innovation partnerships between industry, and some elite group of world-class research universities.


This kind of strategic collaboration is a priority area of work, providing substantial stream of external funding, and enhanced opportunities for our academic partners to work on ground-breaking research, vital for development in Africa. 


Our destination services include investment promotion and cluster development support. We showcase opportunities in Africa to global investors.

Our cluster development work supports competitiveness in African cities, through the delivery of interlocking clusters of entrepreneurial  ecosystem development projects to accelerate economic development in urban areas.


We know that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives private sector growth. Thus, enabling enterprise capacity for SMEs and the self-employed is central to our work. By enabling capacity we help communities, organisations, entities, projects and individuals we work with get off the ground and up to the speed.


For example, by exploring entrepreneurial opportunities for micro manufacturing, we enable sustainable enterprise growth flourish. By creating access to market and market information, we enable rural citizens and small farm-holders to grow their enterprises.


Go Abroad is Seedgap's global education partnerships. It provides both agent service to HE partners; and expert advice to prospective international students looking to realise their study abroad dreams.


Key component to this is Pathway Africa, an innovation generation initiative that gives students, researchers, academics, scientists, and engineers from Africa access they need to develop skills, methods, and processes that are essential for today’s fastest-growing world, by undertaking Masters and PhD projects at world-leading universities.
