Once the venture backers complete their training, they commit to finance their cohort ventures either individually or collectively.

Zidi Venture Backers Programme is targeting aspiring diaspora investors, international investors as well as investors in Africa.

Participants join a general programme, and then branch out to join various chapters per country/region. This will essentially help to reduce the financing gap currently within diaspora entreprises/African SME’s.

Through their 4 weeks programme, the investors will receive tools to become confident and start functioning as venture backers who invest collectively thus minimizing the risk.

The programme will entail;

In-depth Bootcamp covering basic informal investing basics

One-on-one Mentoring from experienced investors

Investing where they assemble their venture backers club and start investing together under our guidance and ecosystem deal pipeline

Chance to become judges in their pitch competition

Monthly investor meetups of your venture club and other clubs

Free Zidicircle’s Venture backers membership for 12 months


As part of this program they want to bring together successful, motivated, and passionate professionals with a broad interest in the venture capital space who are driven to find and fund exceptional zidicircle cohorts from their incubation and acceleration programmes.
