The Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion remain a challenge for Corporates, globally. We journey closely with Procurement Managers to co-create and implement strategic interventions. A diverse supply chain is not merely a regulatory imperative, it's simply good business.

The 2017 Ventureburn Tech Startup Survey powered by Telkom Futuremakers found that while the number of black entrepreneurs running technology startups might be on the rise, most are struggling to generate revenue or access finance. The impact of the lack of diversity and inclusion in the tech space is a global challenge, as African Founders we need to tackle it head-on.

Since launchjing in 2016, we have made it our mission to change the dismal Female Founder data as we play a crucial role in plugging the leaky tech pipeline by supporting Female Founders to successfully close their pre-series A funding round. Over the past few years, we have gained significant insight into the interventions needed to create a robust pipeline for the tech ecosystem. In collaboration with our strategic partners, we are building on the successes and our achievements to date.

THE BLOCKCHAIN BOOTCAMP

Launching a blockchain startup in Africa is exhilarating yet daunting for Female Founder, it signals growth and scalability but also the very real reality of having to face investors perhaps for the first time. Founders have worked tirelessly to launch their startup but need support to successfully close their pre-series A funding round. In our experience, many Founders are not sufficiently prepared to meet investors and fall through the leaky tech pipeline. 


Our accelerator programme support this very important cohort given the opportunity to scale and create jobs. Successfully scaling a startup requires shifting and changing deeply ingrained mindsets while adopting new competencies. The Blockchain Bootcamp prepares Female Founders to pitch to a panel of investors and ensure post-programmatic success.


The future is female and it will be powered by Blockchain, watch this space for more on how we will support Female Founders specializing in this exciting technology.

THE IMPACT

The Impact Assessment Report compiled and verified by PwC specifically for our accelerator programme quantifies the impact of the programme but also gives the Female Founder an overview of their overall performance month-on-month. The data analytics provided by the PwC Impact Assessment Tool is extremely important for us as it also guides us to implement data driven interventions.


We cannot accelerate world-class businesses in isolation, we believe collaboration is the future and what corporates need is a way to connect their strengths and resources with external innovation in order to drive exponential growth and prevent themselves from becoming victims of digital darwinism.
