    Dov Girnum, CEO Merchant Capital

  • Starting a business is a daunting prospect, especially one that has a focus on an unproven and experimental technology. I have benefitted enormously from the support and wisdom I have received from AlphaCode during my time as a member.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

  • Being located in the heart of Africa's biggest financial services hub, we have gained a lot of credibility through AlphaCode. Our customers trust our brand by association, which results in increased sales of cows.

    Ntuthuko Shezi, CEO Livestock Wealth

  • AlphaCode is without a doubt the premium fintech and startup community in South Africa providing many learning, growth and network opportunities and an environment which adds concrete value to us

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

  • Slide is now well on the way to causing significant disruption in the South African fintech sector. We would not have been able to break into the South African market so rapidly without the help provided by AlphaCode.

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in providing a platform for us to access industry thought leaders, networks, working space, coaching and ultimately the opportunity to pitch to global multi-nationals and secure funding that very few startups get to land in their first year.

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore

  • AlphaCode has been instrumental in the growth of our business. Through the club, we have met many like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses with whom we have formed strategic partnerships. The team is incredibly generous with their time and continue to give us invaluable mentorship and support.

    Annabel Dallamore, CEO StriderTech
