Frankfurt (Germany) and Nairobi (Kenya), September 2020. GreenTec is very pleased to report that Amitruck has been selected for the Africa Mobility Initiative’s (AMI) Africa Transformative Mobility Accelerator. Our Kenya-based logistics portfolio start-up will join 8 other mobility companies from across Kenya and Uganda in the 2020/2021 cohort.

AMI’s vision is to create a vast network of continental and global transformative mobility enthusiasts, who work together to create sustainable and scalable solutions to mobility challenges in Africa. To this end, the accelerator program provides a six-month acceleration period, where the start-ups receive coaching and mentorship, network with mobility stakeholders, practitioners and enthusiasts. The startups also attend seminars with a view to pitch their solutions at the Africa Transformative Mobility Summit in April 2021 in Nairobi, Kenya; and receive a grant of up to $25,000 for the top start-ups during the mobility summit.

Amitruck’s selection into the accelerator program once again demonstrates the international competitiveness of their innovative logistics platform. GreenTec is very pleased to see our investee join the impressive group of program participants.
