Africa’s Best Startup Ecosystems in 2023

The South African startup ecosystem is one of the most promising on the continent. With economically successful cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa has a vibrant, private sector-led startup scene. With a small but healthy startup ecosystem, thanks to a tight-knit community of freelancers and entrepreneurs, Mauritius has a relatively developed physical infrastructure that serves as a solid foundation for new businesses. The Namibian startup scene offers local entrepreneurs a secure and stable environment that promotes entrepreneurship and innovation in the region. The Tunisian startup ecosystem is still in the early phase of its development, but the total startup funding raised by the Tunisian tech startups increased significantly in 2022.
