INJINI'S ACCELERATION PARTNERSHIP

Injini’s Acceleration Partnership is an EdTech-specialised venture development programme uniquely designed to support high-growth, high-impact companies using technology and innovation to address pressing education challenges across sub-Saharan Africa. Participating EdTech companies - or "Acceleration Partners" - are working to improve educational outcomes across pre-primary, K-12 and teacher training and professional development

Equity-free support that takes a partnership approach to business acceleration, broken down into two phases with a variable timeframe: 

PHASE 1: 

6-8 months of intensive acceleration support focused on increasing capacity for the team in three key areas:

  1. Impact Measurement and Management,

  2. Market Access, and

  3. Financial Sustainability 

PHASE 2: 

Bespoke support tailored to your strategic goals, for example: 

  • product development and commercialisation,

  • curriculum design,

  • assessment integration, and/or

  • financial modelling and resource planning 

WHAT WE OFFER

​Key Objectives of the Injini Acceleration Partnership Programme:

  1. Facilitate market access with a lens to increase reach to beneficiaries at the “bottom of the pyramid”;

  2. Design and implement, or refine, impact measurement, monitoring, and evaluation systems; and

  3. Improve financial sustainability, including investment readiness support, where appropriate.

WHAT OUR ACCELERATION PARTNERS SAY

Hands Raised

TOM PERRY
CO-FOUNDER OF INSTILL EDUCATION

[The Injini Team] has been deeply thoughtful about the support they have provided, leveraging the extensive experience and networks they have built since their inception to great effect. They have been understanding as we've gone through our own ups and downs, and

pushed when we needed to be pushed. They've supported us expertly as we've transitioned from being a teacher training organisation into becoming an ed tech organisation, a move that would have been significantly harder without their advice. We remain deeply appreciative of everything they do for us, and look forward to working with them long into the future.

Working with the Injini team through the Acceleration Partnership has been like having a separate department solely dedicated to our growth. Beyond the human resources and financial support, we have benefited immensely from being part of the Injini ecosystem. What a great partner to have!
