The maximum financing from the matching fund is 60,000€ per transaction.

Brand Concept

It’s time to rise together. Nothing is more rewarding for us than doing great work for clients with meaningful missions. Through a deep understanding of our audience’s makeup and motivations, we design digital experiences that connect with people.

We designed a symbol to represent the growth of the African startups out of the catalyst more than just a logo. A symbol that reflects a change or increase or growth based on a reaction of a fuel factor to all startups to enable them for thriving using a substance known as a catalyst. The X factor of all innovation is the cash to enable all founders for achieving their targeted success as fas as possible.

We built and activated Catalytic Brand through cultural insight, strategic vision, and the power of emotion across every element of its expression.
