African tech startups raised funding in excess of US$195 million in 2017, up 51 per cent on 2016, with the number of startups securing funding also increasing to 159.

This represents the most successful year of fundraising by African tech startups since tracking began.

For the third consecutive year, Disrupt Africa is releasing comprehensive data on the tech investment ecosystem across Africa, contained in the DISRUPT AFRICA AFRICAN TECH STARTUPS FUNDING REPORT 2017.

The report tracks funding raised by startups in an additional 13 African nations.

Sector-specific research shows the fintech sector received the most funding; while the e-commerce sector saw the biggest percentage growth as compared to the previous year.
