Tony Nyagah Co-Founder & MD, Strauss Energy

Before joining the GrowthAfrica Acceleration programme, I talked to several investors with no success and I was frustrated. This Programme made me see my business inside out and now I understand why investors were not interested.

Henok Abera Founder, Wow Peanut butter, Ethiopia

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.

Valerie Muigai Founder, Kijani Baby Uganda

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.
