What if founders had a virtual assistant to help them be better founders?

In partnership with Parallel Score, one of our portfolio companies, we’re developing Tipbot, a chat bot that will give founders valuable information they need to drive their businesses forward. We’re starting with marketing and sales concepts and some elementary math functionality.

What if we had data and the right tools to help founders track progress in the early days of their company?

We developed the tiphub tracker to help teams track their company progress in a more structured and deliberate way. It also helped us better understand what the best companies were doing to be successful.

What does a community structured / founder centric accelerator program look like?

In the early days, we realized there was no real program focused on working with African and African diaspora entrepreneurs. So we developed Diaspora Demo Day what has fused into DDX. Every year, we bring together African and African diaspora founders/ focused companies to Washington DC to build community meet new stakeholders.
