If the idea conception followed by its implementation is the most difficult phase for a startup, their financing is a constant problem. Startups are not only for dreamers but also for doers. More and more young graduates are undressing fast to put on the entrepreneurial costume. In Africa, young people have the same dreams and opportunities to seize than those in Europe. The digital tool makes it possible to meet and create based on the specific needs of the continent and to find adapted solutions. This offers the opportunity for young entrepreneurs to have a professional project and those startups will be focused mainly to serve their continent. "Scalable startups in the field of e-commerce and finance end up reducing the cost of investing in Africa. These are also the first ones to benefit from venture capital investments. The more these startups are born, the more it awakes some people’s place and interest (connection to solar energy of the most remote populations, e-health, e-education, etc.)," says Grégory Clemente, CEO of Proparco. He talks about this subject in its editorial, issue of the private review and development of Proparco dedicated to the financing of startups in Africa.
