VC Flourish Ventures Launches African Founder Well-Being Survey

Flourish Ventures, an early-stage global fintech venture capital firm, in collaboration with local ecosystem partners and research partner Startup Snapshot, has launched the African Founder Well-being Survey .

The deal is aimed at surveying VC-backed founders in Egypt, Kenya, and  Nigeria  to uncover the unique challenges African tech founders face and raise awareness and support for their needs. 

According to Efayomi Carr, Flourish investment principal, “they’re going after the impossible. Almost all venture-backed African tech founders are dealing with high-stress levels and the potential for burnout, especially given the dramatic economic downturns taking place.

“It’s time to gather primary research on what’s impacting founders most so that investors and ecosystem partners can provide better support and more resources during entrepreneurial journeys.” 

Input from tech entrepreneurs in Egypt, Kenya and Nigeria will bring Africa into global discussions on well-being, pave the way for better local support systems, and provide a more holistic approach to nurturing the African tech ecosystem.

The African Founder Well-being Survey follows a Flourish 2023 founder survey conducted in Brazil with Endeavour, a global network of entrepreneurs. 

VC-backed founders in Egypt, Kenya and Nigeria can participate by completing this  brief survey . All survey respondents will remain anonymous. Sharing experiences can shed light on the critical challenges founders face and pave the way for positive change.
