The last day of 2021, thank you for an amazing year.
Thank You for Going Strong With Us Through 2021, 2022 Will Be Phenomenal!
We started this year on a roll...
We had some amazing speakers to help us plan the year and our growth.
We were able to disburse over N3,000,000 in grants and gifts to members of our community.
We signed on some amazing businesses as Herconomy partners. Got into Startup Bootcamp Accelerator Program, which was an intense and quite fruitful journey.
Of course, we signed the biggest partnerships with Amazon and Qatar.
And then we transitioned fully to Herconomy, the start of our Fintech journey. Whew!
Then, our minds were blown when we raised $600k in hours!!! And mostly from our community.
And through it all...You were there with us.
Thank you for being with us through 2021.
We promise, 2022 is going to be phenomenal.
