Greetings! The next Tekedia Capital cycle will run from Oct 2 to Nov 14, 2023. That means Nov 14, 2023 is the last date to receive payment for members participating in the cycle.
We have great companies coming. In one, we joined YCombinator to invest in one of the world’s AI-powered modern cybersecurity firms (space will be rationed but we can expand if necessary). And we also have an agtech firm which generates tens of millions of US dollars in Nigeria. Shortly after we signed the term sheet, a big Swiss agro-giant came to lead the next round; the founder is in Zurich as we type.
Today, one of our startups was picked by a big Lagos bank to manage its agro-lending (capital size: N5 billion), drawing from impressive execution results that the startup has recorded since it raised money from us in May 2023. We will provide details during the business review.
Please remember that the H2 2023 Business Review of portfolio companies will be held on Sept 16, 2023 at 4-6pm WAT. The Zoom link is on this page in the Board when logged in.
If you have completed your 4 cycles, please renew here via our bank (for Naira payment) or Paypal, Stripe and other means if paying in USD. The amount remains $1,000 or Naira equivalent (we will be changing the rate soon, so renew as early as possible).
