My African Startup Story
These are the first-hand stories of Startup founders in Africa, both from Africa and other nationalities, and the unromanticized madness that goes into this amazing but demanding continent. You will hear everything from advice to warnings, successes to failures, myths that are facts to facts that are mythical and the romance and heartbreak, then romance that can all exist in a 24-hour cycle. This is not Silicon Valley, and Silicon Savannah is even a stretch. But for everyone that speaks, there are stories of battles most people didn't know they would face and achievements that mean more than finance, recognition and valuations. These are founders, funders, pace setters, leaders and learners that are tussling to find a place in the soul of a continent. Make no mistake, failure is as much a part of their DNA as their successes are. Welcome to an African’s story of Africa.
