About the report

In this report, GrowthAfrica and Systemic Innovation spotlight high growth firms Kenya, Ethiopia and Rwanda, and nest in the context of all activity conducted by startups and scaleups in these countries. Access to robust data is varied across the three nations; this report seeks to apply available data to highlight opportunities for augmented understanding of high growth and innovation ecosystems, which in turn contributes to economic growth, and high quality job creation. The report points out where data is missing which demands a more joined up approach to venture and ecosystem data curation to address gaps and market failures stemming from information asymmetries.
