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.
