Who we are

We are growth frontiers. We focus on growing ambitious and scalable African ventures and SMEs into successful enterprises through business acceleration, strategic advice and access to investments.

We provide business growth programmes for high-potential entrepreneurs as well as design and deliver activities for partners and clients in support of entrepreneurs.
