We are open to all sectors but have a soft spot for:
They have made my first experience with an investment firm, seamless and successful. This deal was timely since we were looking to grow but struggled in accessing funds. They supported us in negotiations to ensure it was a good deal for us.
We were encouraged to look deeply within the business. We have now successfully managed to fully communicate to the team where we are heading as a business and how we shall achieve it. Our vision has also been incorporated into our daily activities.
I joined the programme because I wanted to scale and I particularly enjoyed the customer journey workshop. It helped me accurately define who my mobile app was targeting. With this understanding, I pitched to my board and they approved it.
I highly recommend GrowthAfrica's Acceleration Programme as an opportunity to evaluate the direction your venture is taking and identify the most effective strategies and models to steer it towards the right destination.
The GrowthAfrica team has been "a shoulder to lean on" through my entrepreneurial journey.
I learnt a lot in the customer journey and today I know how to segment every customer coming through our doors.
