As a four time founder myself, I strongly believe that founder support is paramount for a strong startup ecosystem in Africa. It’s one thing to start a business but it’s a whole different thing to run a business and run it well. As a Founding GP, one of my primary goals running my venture fund is to support founders with mentorship, hands on support and with investment.

My mentorship comes in many forms. Some of which are operational support, entrepreneurial support, lifestyle support and leadership support.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I know that founder support is very important to the startup and for the founder. To me, providing the right kind and amount of hands on support is one of the best ways to help make sure the founder is put in the best position to succeed.
