Independent but still connected...

Pando is the world’s largest, most dense organism ever to exist. It is a large forest that is assumed to have one massive underground root system.

The reason we named the community Pando is because on the surface we may all look separate, but this African tech ecosystem is intricately connected, and for us to thrive we must remember that.

Connect with other founders

Ask questions, get feed back, collaborate on projects, organise meet ups, share stories, do business together, support each other.

Hey everyone! Has anyone heard of any exciting pre-seed/seed agtech and/or supply chain logistics start-ups?

I know of more well-known ones, such as Sokowatch, Twiga, Lori, Kobo360, and Releaf but curious if others have come to mind for people. Feel free to DM me if so

Hi All - I will be in Nairobi from this week. I would like to learn directly from founders or CFOs on what their pain points have been with their Kenyan business bank accounts. Please send me a DM. We are launching Lenco banking in Kenya soon with the goal to make business banking easier. Let me know if you would like to get early access.
