About us


If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together

GoGetters is a members’ only entrepreneurial community of ambitious opportunity makers, who want to or are running their own business in Africa. Our community is a trusted peer network of members committed to helping each other to keep growing – personally and professionally.

GoGetters provide the tools, create the space and form the structure that allows our members  to connect, build trust, inspire and support one another.

Formed in May 2013, around the motto ‘Less Talk, More Action’  the GoGetters team explored the entrepreneurial environment of South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda, Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone (click ‘here‘ to find out more about our journey).  In that time they shot a documentary, executed 3 entrepreneurship workshops, featured on 5 TV channels and started a sugarcane drinks business in Sierra Leone. The journey solidified their sense of community and kinship and further fuelled their passion to act as a catalyst to accelerate the African promise. They witnessed boundless opportunities and realised that through building trust, being open and active, that they could be the change they want to see.

Love

Love is at the heart of everything we do. It is about having social impact and genuinely looking out for the world and the people around us, knowing when to be tough and when to be kind.

Combining the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals no one person could have done alone. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.
