About AKRO

Our Mission, Our Values & Our Team

Our Mission

We help entrepreneurs think bigger, build better, move faster.

Akro is a company dedicated to helping entrepreneurs turn ideas into businesses. We offer events, venture funding and consulting services, and we have a painfully practical attitude towards entrepreneurship.

Our Values

- Togetherness

In the same ethos we live by: “It takes a village to raise a child”, so we believe it takes a community to grow a business.

- Growth

We believe it’s at the tip of the branch where the new growth comes. So innovation and ground breaking thinking is part of this value. Creators of the Future is our by-line.

- Commited

We are committed to our co-workers wellbeing & growth, and to our own growth. We are committed to pursuing our passion of holding hands with our partners, our friends, our colleagues. We are committed to finding joy on this journey and making the hard work fun.

- Resilient

We know the importance of being a bulldog when the going gets tough, leaning on each other for support and working it to the core. We believe in providing the support so that resilience can be nurtured and the startup can stay focused.

- Honesty

We know that all partnerships require trust which can only come through transparency, with honesty at the heart of this. Yip, we got this covered in one word.

Our Team

Our team are people who have their own businesses, and understand the typical challenges facing entrepreneurs and startups. Ready to get stuck in and do what it takes to help you get your business to the next level, we are there for you.

We are always looking for wise heads and experienced voices to contribute to  our team. If you are one of these and want to give back, mentor@akro.co.za
