The total value of these copious resources is in excess of USD 50,000 per participating venture – but we naturally do not expect you to pay this upfront.

  • 1% of your revenue
  • 2% of your equity
  • 3% of investments raised

We only expect this from you if we help you:

  • Double your revenue or
  • Triple your profit or
  • Help you raise at least USD 250,000

  • You already have an innovative product or service in the market and have paying customers
  • You have a team of co-founders with a balanced skillset, who are ambitious, talented, committed and willing to learn from their peers and the GrowthAfrica team
  • Your team have a burning desire to make the business the next big thing and scale internationally and making the business an impactful multimillion dollar success story

Programme and methodology

  • The programme consists of a 5-days’ boot camp and then subsequently six 3-days workshops where we establish the foundation and equip you with tools to diagnose your business and devise strategies to optimize your business in all conceivable areas.
  • After each workshop you will work in-company with the assistance of your mentor, growth catalyst, financial modeller and sages to implement your new strategies and innovations – boosting your growth trajectory in significant ways.
