Latest studies show that 40% of the start-ups strand within five years. Less than 20% of the founded companies still exist after 10 years. Less than 0.1% grows to make a significant impact.
To start and scale a prosperous company is a major challenge. Especially if you have not done this before and reality doesn't stick to the plan. That is when you could use some good advice and a wider network of talent, expertise and investors. Preferably someone who speaks your language and can draw from personal experience.
Ukukhula can offer you this. The coaches and mentors of Ukukhula are true experts. They are passionate and highly experienced. And the best part is that there are no out-of-pocket expenses for the coachee. We strongly believe in gain-sharing and participation. Your success will be our success!
Ukukhula means "growth" in Zulu. The mission of Ukukhula is to grow entrepreneurs; mentally, spiritually, and financially. We are a community of experienced entrepreneurs, managers and advisers from the Netherlands and Flanders. Over the past decades, we have founded, scaled, and sold dozens of companies.
Along the way we have made many mistakes, some even went bankrupt, before we became successful. As an entrepreneur, that's all part of the learning-curve. Now we are ready to take those lessons and pass them on. Today we coach and mentor founders from idea to scaling. And, at the right time, we can help to arrange funding.
We are based in the Netherlands and focus on incubating new startups in exponential technology sectors, such as web-based platforms, e-learning, infinite computing, sensors and networks, 3-D printing, nanomaterials and nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, water and sanitation, and genetics and synthetic biology.
