Good People, I am very happy to announce that one of our portfolio firms in Tekedia Capital is going to Y Combinator. The startup which is not even up to 90 days caught my attention when it was just 3 weeks old. We closed a small deal. And yesterday, it was on stage during Tekedia Capital Demo Day. And this morning, the news came: US-based Y Combinator, the world’s finest and largest accelerator & incubator, has accepted it.
YC is the gold standard and the best; it incubated some of the finest young startups in the world. The specific startup Overview has been updated in Tekedia Capital Syndicate Board; check.
Glory because we are going to the mountaintop. As I told our members, we have developed seven core metrics which we use to assess Africa-operating startups, and increasingly, our bets are outperforming.
Tekedia Capital Members: there is nothing to worry. I have told the team to keep our space in the cap table and they promised. We are not new there, we are simply expanding.
Congrats to Team – I hope to make a post in the coming weeks once we finish all paperworks. YC, thank you. I have my bell ready and cannot wait to ring in New York, London or Lagos.
