WHAT OUR ACCELERATION PARTNERS SAY
CO-FOUNDER OF INSTILL EDUCATION
[The Injini Team] has been deeply thoughtful about the support they have provided, leveraging the extensive experience and networks they have built since their inception to great effect. They have been understanding as we've gone through our own ups and downs, and
pushed when we needed to be pushed. They've supported us expertly as we've transitioned from being a teacher training organisation into becoming an ed tech organisation, a move that would have been significantly harder without their advice. We remain deeply appreciative of everything they do for us, and look forward to working with them long into the future.
Working with the Injini team through the Acceleration Partnership has been like having a separate department solely dedicated to our growth. Beyond the human resources and financial support, we have benefited immensely from being part of the Injini ecosystem. What a great partner to have!
As we look to expand into South African public schools, Trackosaurus has really benefited from Injini's relationships with high-level decision-makers in the Department of Basic Education.
