"The team's enthusiasm for Africa is unmatched and the efforts put forth have allowed us to raise additional capital and position ourselves to grow quickly cross-border in Africa and globally."
Yaw Ofosu Ansong
KOVA DX
"I loved the accelerator content, and the team provides access to key stakeholders that the typical pattern-matching investor wouldn’t even consider. Joining the DOJO was a total turning point for us."
Tebogo Mokwena
AKIBA DIGITAL
"Just when you think they've already gone above-and-beyond in accelerator services, they bombarded us with hundreds of investors to help support our journey to being a $B company."
Anna Gudmundson
CEO, BioSelf Technology, Inc.
"I can’t tell you how good this program was, how much we got out of it, we also raised more money on the back of it and they got us ready for that and helped with introductions."
Dr. Lieza Danan
CEO, Founder of LiVeritas Biosciences
"We are currently engaged with VCs and angels we met in the program. I highly recommend the program to other programs, especially those with a technical background."
