Entrepreneur testimonials

“Uncap’s revenue share model means that they trust our process and the decisions we make and are long term partners. I think that Uncap are aware of the hardships that young African start-ups face, especially on the onset and are proving ready to weather the initial storm as they share in the vision after the foundations have been laid.
