Nigerian startup alGROWithm has obtained funds to expand its patented Growth Talent Accelerator Programme to additional people in six African nations.
AlGROWithm, founded in March 2022, is the firm behind the Growth Talent Accelerator Program, which offers ed-tech solutions to growth hackers.
The company has now acquired funds from Digital Africa, which it will use to provide scholarships for aspiring growth hackers to participate in its programs, as well as to expand its training programmes into other African markets.
Applicants from Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and South Africa are now invited, in addition to those from its original Nigeria and Ghana bases. Meanwhile, alGROWithm has introduced GTAP Lite and GTAP Pro, two dynamic programmes designed for people and businesses, respectively.
“Since our 2022 pilot, we have discovered two major ecological needs. There is a constant demand for growth hacking talent, as evidenced by the rapid employment of our previous trainees. Second, we noticed that many firms wanted to up-skill their existing teams rather than starting over with fresh talent,” said alGROWithm founder and chief growth officer Bili Sule.
“We tested the Pro model with companies such as Paga, Figorr, and Kebble last year and had excellent success. This influenced our choice to provide both solutions going forward. This year alone, we plan to train over 150 growth leaders across East, West, and Southern Africa, demonstrating our continuous commitment to closing the growth talent gap in the ecosystem and boosting African firms to new heights.”
