By the way, I was on this ten week accelerator. There were ten sessions. I went to two, realised it was no-where near as good as Spark* and missed the rest. I snuck in for the big pitch day on the last night, and we won out of the 25 companies! Thank you Spark!
(We won’t give the name of this cheeky entrepreneur).
Thank you so much for all the incredible information you’ve invested in me. Everyday as an entrepreneur I use every single thing I learnt at Spark. I can see my strategy so clearly now and I’m a lot more confident of my impact
Murendeni Mafumo
Always great to chat to a strategy mentor like you. At times I feel I’m losing it, but these chats always help me get my venture back on track
Eliot Chisango
I cannot express enough the absolute joy that I have, for the visibility that Spark* has given me and for the networks and collaborations. You have surrounded me with the right people to fulfil my vision, put me in relationships with people who are like-minded and pointed me toward a new mission for the people that I work with. Asanteni Sana!
Teresa Njoroge
Sometimes I have to pinch myself to see if its true, because at times it doesn’t seem real how far I have come since I joined Spark* eighteen months ago.
Sitawa Wafula
Because of Spark* I just landed a chunk of funding. I am so excited and focused!
