Our Story

A community for entrepreneurs to foster collaboration and provide a support system

EBH Africa started in 2020 with the aim of creating a community to foster networking, collaboration and learning exchange for growth amongst new and already existing entrepreneurs.

Soon after the community was founded, the global covid-19 pandemic caused a lot of businesses around Africa to be put on hold and most businesses had to shut down. 

The community eventually served as a safe space to provide the needed support for business owners which in turn increased the number of entrepreneurs in the community with representation from seven African countries. 



We are on a mission to create an ecosystem to drive business growth and sustainability in Africa, making entrepreneurship easy for the African entrepreneur.


To build an ecosystem for economic development with the right tools and resources to build and scale sustainable businesses
