Where previous students worked.

Our previous internship manager.

We know that access to early-stage angel and seed funding is still a barrier to growth for many entrepreneurs across the continent. We also know that active angel investors are proving critical to plugging the gap, which will, in turn, lead to the kind of growth we need to see across the ecosystem. Our very own African Angel Academy, an investor training programme, is passionate about empowering emerging angel investors with the know-how, networks and opportunities needed for active investment in local startups. iXperience interns joined us to build on our strategies, and they were eager and hungry to learn.

What makes our company unique when compared to teams performing a similar capability in other companies is that we place more emphasis on the algorithmic and theoretical knowledge. Practically, while SQL and other database management skills are necessary, those skills are assumed rather than celebrated, whereas implementing a bleeding edge version of XGBoost or having a new insight into an algorithm is celebrated.
