Three African Startups Selected For SOSV MOX Accelerator
Three African Startups Selected For SOSV MOX Accelerator

Three African startups have been selected to take part in the 12th edition of the SOSV MOX accelerator, receiving up to USD 150 K in funding and access to tailored support. The MOX program is software-focused and aimed at startups developing mobile solutions for the next four billion internet users. Aside from the USD 150 K seed funding, each startup benefits from a six-month program with a specialized salesforce, tech support for growth, and a close-knit cross-border fraternity. 

Of the 13 startups named in its 12th cohort, three hail from Africa. They are Kenya’s Badili, a “re-commerce” platform for smartphones and consumer electronics; Kenya’s LipaLater, a buy now, pay later solution for shopping, e-commerce, and payments; and Nigeria’s Treepz, a bus-hailing app that gives commuters access to comfortable, reliable, and safe transport.
