Our Manifesto

At the Beta Collective, we are driven by the belief that innovation and entrepreneurship have the power to transform the African continent and the world. We envision a future where African startups lead the charge in driving social and economic progress, and we work tirelessly towards making this a reality.

We understand that access to resources is critical to the success of any entrepreneur, and we reject the notion that talent and potential are restricted by location or background. We strive to level the playing field for all African entrepreneurs, providing them with the support they need to succeed.

We recognize that building successful startups is no easy feat, and we are committed to providing the necessary advisory, capital, products, and community support that African startups require to thrive. By doing so, we aim to drive sustainable economic growth, create jobs, and solve some of the biggest challenges facing our continent.

We refuse to accept the status quo and are dedicated to creating a world where African startups are not viewed as “charity cases,” but as key players in the global innovation landscape. At the Beta Collective, we are focused on scaling the global African startup ecosystem by increasing the number of successful startups.

Join us in our mission to drive positive change in Africa and beyond. We are the Beta Collective, and we are here to transform the world through African innovation and entrepreneurship.


Founder & CEO

Hello, I'm Ukeme, founder of The Beta Collective. I started this venture because of my passion for entrepreneurship in Africa and the potential for impact. My mission is to support early-stage companies that are working to solve grand challenges in African communities globally.

I love hosting panels and events that bring together like-minded individuals to spur discussion and collaboration. Using the lean framework, I help these entrepreneurs think through their strategy and create a roadmap for success.

Aside from being an entrepreneur, I'm also a medical doctor with a background in web development. This unique combination allows me to bring a fresh perspective to problem-solving and innovation.

My ultimate goal is to create a better future for African communities through entrepreneurship and collaboration. I believe that by working together, we can make a meaningful difference and tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing our world today.
