VFA was created by a team of former colleagues who have seen this challenge first-hand, to provide talent a landing pad in the African startup ecosystem, exposing them to local market nuances, offering expert-led training specific to key roles and introducing them to leading startups looking to hire now.
VFA offers a 3-month immersion program together with top startups with roles to fill. We co-create our program with startups, including actionable projects for fellows to complete, expert-led workshops in specific areas, and an opportunity to fast-track through the interview process for their dream role at the end of the fellowship.
