The Baobab Network stands out because of its commitment to supporting founders on an individual level, not solely focusing on the business aspects. Each interaction echoes their unique human touch and genuine care – their approach is both inspiring and distinctive. Thanks to their support, we’ve discovered the profound potency of collaboration and have unlocked boundless potential for Colis.ma’s growth. We’re excited for our journey ahead and  confident in the success that lies on our horizon!” – Issam Darui, Founder & CEO at Colis.ma.

It goes way beyond just scaling our business; it’s about integrating into a  founder community that nurtures innovation and provides support from like-minded people. The Baobab Network accelerator has provided access to investors , and as a business operating in a “tiny” Francophone West Africa market this has proven to be the right kind of partnership.” – Wilfried Sandon Dabire, Founder & CEO of Eazy Chain.

“We are exhilarated to introduce an exceptional new cohort for 2023, expanding our reach into fresh territories and sectors, including payments, logistics, and B2B marketplaces. Each start-up not only presents an innovative solution but also promises to significantly influence the technological landscape with its transformative ideas.

Our journey with these founders goes beyond the demo day. Their fervour and our commitment sets the stage for their journey towards scaling and shaping a noteworthy imprint on Africa’s tech ecosystem. As they navigate the intricacies of expansion, we stand ready to support them, anticipating the remarkable strides they will make in their respective sectors.” said Niama El Bassunie, Managing Partner at The Baobab Network.
