A LITTLE OF MY STORY
I’m a 2x founder who previously led a tech startup from homeless into a multi-million dollar business. I then launched a $10M Africa-focused fund with no Ivy League degree, wealthy family, or VC/PC experience.
I am motivated by the stories of talented African founders and determined to contribute to their success, giving back to the continent that has given me so much. Investing in startups in Africa is not just a good deal; it's an opportunity to unlock untapped potential and foster transformative growth in emerging markets.
Africa is transforming rapidly, and being part of its growth story can be financially rewarding and personally fulfilling.
behind the account
In fact, I'm an entrepreneur with a story that's probably not so different from yours. Growing up in Cameroon, I always wanted to be my own boss. Even as a kid, I hustled by buying candy in bulk and selling it to my classmates. School wasn't really my thing, so I raced through it, graduating high school at 15 and college at 19. While studying in the US, I started a few businesses to pay for my education.
After a brief stint at Apple, I realized the typical corporate 9-5 life wasn't for me. Inspired by tech moguls like Uber and Airbnb, I founded DataGig, a platform connecting data science professionals with small businesses. But let me tell you, the startup journey wasn't a walk in the park. I faced homelessness, lost friends, and encountered countless obstacles. But guess what? I never gave up! Eventually, I found an investor who believed in me, and we built a successful startup together, raising millions in funding. Fast forward to the pandemic in 2020, when everything went haywire. I convinced my co-founders to hire software engineers from Africa, and that's when I saw a whole new set of challenges. But those challenges sparked my mission to bridge the funding gap for African startups.
So, I launched a venture capital fund to invest in and support hundreds of incredible companies across the continent. Together, we're rewriting the rules and making dreams come true. Join me on this journey of empowerment and opportunity!
Bridging the funding gap in Africa's tech ecosystem, while defying conventional expectations. With a focus on community, learning, and building a billion-dollar VC fund for Africa, I strive to drive positive change and empower African entrepreneurs.
I'm loving the journey of bridging the gap between access to funding in Africa and the rest of the world through Ajim Capital. It's incredible to see the growth of African tech startups and the potential they hold for shaping the continent's future.
I'm constantly learning about the challenges and opportunities in the African tech ecosystem and the importance of community and brand building in the venture capital space. I'm also learning to embrace the power of content creation to share my experiences and insights with a wider audience.
I'm not about conforming to conventional norms or letting discouragement hold me back. Despite the skepticism and doubters, I've persisted in pursuing my entrepreneurial dreams and investing in African startups. I believe in defying expectations and making a meaningful impact.
I firmly believe that the future of Africa lies in the hands of its entrepreneurs. By investing in high-growth tech startups and supporting their growth, we can unlock the continent's immense potential. I'm dedicated to building a billion-dollar VC fund focused on Africa and making a lasting difference in the ecosystem.
