Supporting founders is top-priority

"We believe that, given the complexities of building on the continent, African startups will benefit from catalytic value beyond capital. Hence, we focus on building scalable initiatives that offer invaluable support to our portfolio companies." - Damilola Teidi, Head of Platform and Networks

Ventures Platform epitomizes what it means for an investor to provide support beyond simply cutting a check. Whether it's VP’s efficient investment process, connecting us to other investors and potential customers, and providing tailored support – all their touchpoints are intentional and truly value-add.

One day, I will tell the story of the level of support some of us founders have received from Kola and his fund beyond money. Until that day, if you are building the future, this is a fund you should have on your cap table.
Oluyomi Ojo

The support we have received since we joined the Ventures Platform portfolio has been incredible. From perks, introductions, trainings, materials that typical investors would rather not give you access to, and constantly checking to ensure your mental health as a founder or business is in top shape.
