Have a Question?


Some questions founders ask before they book a call with experts. If you can’t find your answer, please ask in the chatbot and we will respond ASAP.

We are running a “Grow African Startups” campaign and offering the marketing calls for free for the campaign. However, Experts have an hourly rate at a reasonable price for their time.

We have a community of growth experts with at least 4 years experience working with African Startups. Our expert community is strictly referral-based, so only recommended and vetted growth experts are allowed.

There are a lot of variables in growth, so we can’t guarantee quick growth or 10x your acquisition numbers for your Startup. But we bring experts that have worked in different industries and have seen success with similar strategy/tactics.

Click on the book a call button, give us information about your startup growth need (so the experts can better prepare for the call) and we will send you a calendly link to book a time.

Based on your growth need, industry, location and business model, we will match you to a growth expert from our community that will be better suited for you.

We are 101% sure you will get value from the experts. But if after the session you feel you didn’t get any value, we will offer you a 100% refund because we are more passionate about seeing African Startups grow.
