"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
"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."

"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."
