We're building the most powerful growth engine for African startups & their founders.

Founders Factory Africa (FFA) is unlike any place else you've ever worked. We are venture builders dedicated to solving some of Africa's biggest challenges & capitalizing on it's incredible potential by leveraging market & tech opportunities. Over the next five years, we'll build 40 businesses from scratch & scale 100 existing growth-stage ventures through our venture development programs. Backed by leading corporates, such as Standard Bank - the continent's largest bank - we have access to their vast resources, infrastructure, & expertise & will bring those to bear for all our ventures & entrepreneurs. Starting with FinTech & HealthTech, FFA will expand our focus as we grow, adding other sectors that include retail, transportation, energy, & education.

Our Culture
Our goals are audacious, & we want to work with people who share our passion for pursuing transformation at scale. We believe that good ideas can come from anywhere - not just the top - & we love to build our way out of uncertainty. At FFA, you will work with & meet outstanding & diverse talent from across the continent & help us build a collaborative, inclusive, & supportive network. You will work faster (and learn faster) than you ever have before.

With offices in Johannesburg & London, we are building an ambitious, talented, & passionate team, ensuring that Founders Factory Africa is the continent's best partner for founders.

The Role
FFA is a pan-African investor in fintech, healthtech & agritech. We operate as a South African holding company (backed by corporates) & take equity stakes in African startups across multiple jurisdictions. We currently have investments in South Africa, Delaware, UK, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda & Ghana. We therefore work with an array of stakeholders including investors (angels, VCs & corporates), our corporate shareholders, startup founders across the world. We naturally have various legal & Company Secretariat engagements at all levels of the organisation & are looking for in-house counsel to take ownership of FFA's legal & Company Secretariat priorities (across both our core operations & portfolio) & work with external lawyers/advisors at a project level to deliver on outcomes.
