GetFundedAfrica, the platform that connects startups to a wide range of investors, celebrated its 3-year anniversary in style with a day filled with excitement and celebration. The company has come a long way from its early days as what someone referred to as a “blog” to building a platform that is now paramount to the African business ecosystem.
The day started with almost everyone working remotely coming to the office, where they were greeted with a festive atmosphere and a sense of camaraderie.
The celebration began with a speech from Adebola Omololu, the co-founder/CEO who talked about the inception of the company, the journey that led to the creation of GetFundedAfrica and the milestones to come. He also shared the vision behind the company and how it has grown to become a leading platform for connecting startups with investors in Africa. The CEO acknowledged how the company has evolved over the last 3 years, morphing from just a data and research site to a platform that is now a crucial part of the African business ecosystem.
The co-founder/CCO, Tunji Oke also took the stage and talked about the recruitment of both the pioneer and current staff and the importance of the people in the company. He stated that since the company started during the pandemic, the first team members met 18 months after the company had started. He also emphasized that GetFundedAfrica’s success is a result of the hard work, dedication and passion of its employees.
The celebration also featured awards and promotions, recognizing the contributions of employees who have gone above and beyond to help the company achieve its goals. The awards ceremony was a testament to the hard work and dedication of the employees, who have helped to make GetFundedAfrica the success it is today.
The anniversary celebration was also an opportunity for the employees to connect and network with each other, and to reflect on the company’s accomplishments. The event was a celebration of the company’s past, but also a look forward to the future and the continued growth and success of GetFundedAfrica.
The day ended with some good music, refreshments and team members celebrating their awards and chatting away.
