Oracle, a global cloud computing firm has launched a US$982k program to support African startups from different verticals to drive the digital technologies for business growth.
The program is led by Oracle for Startups and it is set to offer an extra resource guide to technology startups on the continent for the next two years.
Startups will also have access to monitoring, technical support, and go-to-market resources.
Speaking on the program, Jason Williamson, vice president of Oracle for Startups, said:
“At Oracle for Startups, we help new businesses grow from grassroots through scaling. So far, enrolments from South African startups have grown by 91 per cent, while enrolments from new businesses in over 13 other African countries have grown by 39 per cent within the last year – all of which is evidence that Africa is at the forefront of the digital economy,”
Jason further explained that the investment will drive the continuous effort of African tech entrepreneurs to leverage digital technologies in their products.
Following a recent announcement of Oracle’s first cloud region on the continent, the program will meet the fast-growing demand for enterprise cloud services in Africa.
