Too Long; Didn't Read

MarketForce 360 raised $350k ($350k) for its first external round of capital. Less than 0.5% of startups globally get funded by either angel investors or VC's (venture capitalists) In Africa, the statistics are worse! This led me back to my dormant personal blog to share a few lessons picked up from our fundraising journey. The aim of writing this is to give some context into what worked for us, hoping it gives any upcoming African (technology) entrepreneur insights on how to get their first round of external capital.
