We are an investment company focused on helping early and growth-stage entrepreneurs build enduring companies in Africa
Consonance has been a partner of AFEX ever since they invested in our business in 2019. The guidance provided by the Consonance team, subsequently, has shored up our operational capabilities and enabled us to execute a winning strategy for transforming Africa’s commodity markets.
The team has displayed a strong understanding of marketplace and platform businesses like ours, which has undergirded their advisory role, allowing them to both highlight opportunities that are a right fit for us and connect us to beneficial partnerships on our expansion and growth journey.
Consonance has been a valuable addition to SeamlessHR since they invested in our seed round in 2020. I'd say some of the best things about them are their quick and efficient decision-making process and intentionality in looking out for their portfolio companies.
They have been very supportive with useful introductions to customers and potential investors for our Series A. I’ll recommend partnering with Consonance without any hesitation

Having Consonance as our first institutional investor set us on the right path for success and growth. Consonance and Bolaji Adeoye have fostered a supportive environment and provided support and advice on governance structures and models for keeping our unit economics goals in sight.
The effort put in by the Consonance team to build a community among portfolio companies is invaluable, particularly given their experience as an indigenous investor. Making the decision to accept Consonance’s offer as our first VC was the right one for us as a company.

Consonance has been a great investor in Bonita Foods. From the DD phase they were really transparent and respectful of our timelines. Post raise, they have also been an invaluable resource from their contributions to strengthening our processes to their intros to other investors and operational leaders.
Overall, Consonance really goes to great lengths for their founders and I hope our future fundraising experiences mirror what we have seen with them.

We built ToNote in partnership with Consonance from day zero and the level of hands-on support, advisory, network leverage and strategic input has been second to none. It’s business, but it feels like family.

Consonance understood our vision for the future of supply chains earlier than many other stakeholders in the ecosystem and backed us just as we started.
Their team has been a great support to Releaf from critical introductions to tough feedback. It has ultimately made us better entrepreneurs.

Consonance has been a great partner and mentor in our business. I am grateful for Mobolaji Adeoye, who is also our chairman and has guided us well and provided valuable strategic guidance and support since 2018 when Consonance made their seed investment to Pezesha.
Consonance has also provided us with debt investment that has impacted more than 5,000 SMEs with access to affordable working capital. Their support, patience, coaching and strategic advice has been immensely felt in the growth of our business as we scale. Frankly speaking, a good VC is hard to find, but we found that in Consonance as we are aligned in our values, mission and vision of our business
