Umoja Incubator Programme for Aspiring Developers in the Renewable Energy

Do you have a renewable energy project that needs acceleration? Are you in need of project funding? Would you like to build your technical skills and industry knowledge in renewable energy? The Umoja incubator programme will get you there. Be part of Africa’s renewable energy revolution.

The Incubator Programme, dubbed the ‘Umoja Incubator’, invites aspiring developers in the renewable energy industry who have big ideas but lack the experience or financial capabilities to submit their proposals to the Serengeti initiative.

There is a strong opportunity of investing in renewable energy across sub-Saharan Africa. Although Africa has an enormous renewable energy potential and many local developers have already identified suitable sites, the lack of experience or development capital hinders meaningful project development. The Umoja Incubator addresses this situation by linking up strong early-stage renewable energy projects with access to development capital.

Bring your Renewable Energy Project to Life

‘Umoja’ is Swahili for unity and a symbol of their goal to give aspiring renewable energy developers in sub-Saharan Africa the tools they need to successfully complete their projects. The incubator will allow you to gain access to funding and global networks along with commercial and technical knowledge.
