Connecting, Networking, Collaborating, Sharing
It’s almost impossible to do it alone! You need access to experienced advisors / mentors / partners / collaborators along the way to your startup success.
StartupApp draws its support network from Startup Mzansi Foundation’s Startup Communities Network that they have built over the years. Startup Mzansi has built a successful and vast network of supporting partners who can help with all the details of setting up a new venture.
This network is made of thoughtful and experienced professional people who value both your individual growth & the collaboration that contributes to your startup success.
A group that shares ideas, space, projects, skills, tools, people & other tangible things is a healthy, successful startup community.
We strongly believe in sharing our knowledge with other same minded entrepreneurs so we can all succeed.
