Applications have opened for a West African impact accelerator programme that will help prepare high-growth companies in the region for investment.
Fragg is looking for companies and projects in a variety of impact sectors, including fintech, agri-tech and e-health, to apply for a round of support and funding from a wide range of offshore investors.

Our goal is to make a strong financial return for investors while supporting companies that are contributing to a better world,” said Fragg.
All shortlisted applicants can expect to receive an accelerated proposal assessment programme to help determine the suitability of their business for financing, and support in preparing their business to be eligible for investment.
