"The combination of exhaustive curriculum and panels of inspirational players of the ecosystem worldwide made this program very unique. Apart from the hands-on exposure, I also gained a network of like-minded 'doers' all over Africa and beyond."

"Dream VC took me from zero to one hundred in four months. The program structure assumes no prior knowledge, and takes you from the origins to VC to advanced topics like fund formation. Before joining, I was getting no responses from the VC firms I applied to. Because of Dream VC, I ended up getting multiple interviews while I was still in the program and directly joined Oui Capital as an analyst upon program completion."

"The Dream VC Fellowship challenges every fellow to be of value before any valuation. It fosters meaningful and authentic relationships among fellows, facilitators, founders, and VC experts. Through hardship and perseverance, one uncovers patterns and paths to become an investor fit for African markets."
