What is Project Isidore?
Project Isidore is a Founders Factory Africa venture that is tackling the $65B credit gap for the continent's agriculture SMEs.
We believe that without greater SME inclusion in value-added production, Africa can never achieve true self-sufficiency.
We also know that these same SMEs are excluded from the working capital solutions that enable their larger commercial counterparts to combat unfavorable payment terms and build capacity.
Project Isidore is building a digital platform for agri-SME purchase order management and financing, making it less risky and more affordable for financial institutions to provide the working capital these business need.
This Role :
We are looking for a driven individual to lead Isidore, taking it from a concept to a viable, investable company. As a co-founder you will navigate market validation, product development, commercialisation, and team formation.
Upon completion of the Build Program, you will transition into a Founding CEO role and continue to direct the growth and development of the venture as it looks to scale.
The Deal :
Project Isidore is backed by the full might of Founders Factory Africa's internal teams. You will also benefit from a host of 'unfair advantages' in the market engineered by our Investment and Partnerships teams and driven by our partners at Small Foundation.
This role offers the dual benefit of operational autonomy and relevant, tangible startup support. You receive :
