Super pumped about AfroTech Fest UK back for another year. If you or your organisation is interested in sponsoring click on the link below.
There has been a lot of momentum recently for Zebra startups (those that grow and forgo VC funding). With stories below of founders buying back shares from VC’s as well as a number of exits that have occurred in recent months where founders owned over 90% of their businesses.
Is this a trend we are starting to see in the UK? You can join me for a night of discussion on this at Zebra Unitie London Chapter on 13th September.
