      To find solutions to Africa’s mass-needs, we design, build and launch businesses ourselves, with Founders in Residence. We know that starting and growing a business is hard, so we have developed the right people and processes to mitigate some of the biggest challenges. Our incubator is a fast-track for talented people to become founders. We validate new ideas, leverage data, distribution and IP from our corporate partners, then build founding teams to build solutions to solve complex problems.
