About

About Ambitious Africa

Ambitious Africa was born out of the realization that the Nordic core strengths of Education, Entrepreneurship and Entertainment could be harnessed for increasing global wellbeing and happiness. Ambitious Africa is all about young people. Young people leading the change. Young people working together for a better future. With the support of the African governments and the Nordics. Ambitious Africa is about the best Education. For all, not just a few. Ambitious Africa is delivering through Entrepreneurship. Ambitious Africa is about the best Entertainment.

Ambitious Africa was founded in 2020 with a goal to initiate and support Nordic and African youth-led large-scale grassroots projects with social impact in Africa. It is an umbrella organization of 15 entrepreneurship societies from the Nordics and young change-makers and organizations across Africa. Within a few months, the initiative has started operations in 14 African countries with plans to spread to all 54 African nations. The organization provides stakeholders with a platform to make relevant connections to develop projects in a specific country, supports scaling of successful initiatives across Africa, and offers consulting and impactful internships to Nordic students. Ambitious Africa has been supported by Peter Vesterbacka, angel investor and founder of Slush, the world’s leading startup and tech event.

If you have any questions please send an email to ronny@ambitiousafrica.org.
