LEARN THE INSIDER-KNOWN SIGNALS THAT REVEAL THE MARKET'S HIDDEN TRENDS GIVING YOU AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OVER  OTHER CASUAL STARTUP INVESTORS

According to a recent Bloomberg Insider research piece,

along with consumer generative AI programs like Google’s Bard and OpenAI’s ChatGPT, the generative AI market is poised to explode, growing to $1.3 trillion over the next 10 years from a market size of just $40 billion in 2022 transforming spaces such as generative AI infrastructure as a service ($247 billion by 2032) used for training LLMs, followed by digital ads driven by the technology ($192 billion) and specialized generative AI assistant software ($89 billion). On the hardware side of this, revenue will be driven by AI servers ($132 billion), AI storage ($93 billion), computer vision AI products ($61 billion) and conversational AI devices ($108 billion).

 

AI technology is predicted to be as transformational as the internet was in the 1990s shaking up 40% of this generation's jobs globally having a sweeping impact on white-collar workers pulling in high salaries in banking and tech.

We need to prepare for a future where technology completely overhauls all industries from real estate and hospitality, to health care and social services. Industries that have remained largely untouched since the internet came to play over 30 years ago.

Founder Institute

I'm the Founder & CEO of DYVVYD, a Silicon Valley-based investment platform with a community of angel, syndicate and venture capital investors and the CEOs they invest in.

I've been investing in tech based companies for the past 12+ years and it is my belief that if you have the means and the desire to foster generational wealth creation, while supporting a new wave of innovation across the continent then you should have access to the wealth building advantages of equity ownership, investment capacities and the tools for activation.

You shouldn't have to feel stuck, scrolling the internet sorting through a variety of support articles or strategies which force you to figure out your way on your own. 

There are no rules around joining secret clubs or insider access to get you down your path to being an angel investor and start building wealth. That's why I created the African Angel League built off of DYVVYD's track record of:

  • Over $20,000,000+ in funding raised

  • Over $250,00,000+ in total valuations

  • 200+ satisfied founders + CEOs​

  • Who is this program for?
    This program is for you, if: ✅ You are a US-based or globally based successful career professional or high net worth individual who would like to contribute to the innovation wave projected to sweep Africa within the next 10 years. ✅ You have 3-5 hours a week to commit to your programming inclusive of masterclass sessions, mentor meetups, 'buddy' check-ins and coursework. ✅ You have the necessary funds set aside to commit to the program by settling in full at the launch of your cohort, or via monthly payment plan. ✅ You anticipate being ready (at the close of your cohort) to establish your own syndicate, participate in a DYVVYD established syndicate OR invest individually into our privately curated dealflow of over 200+ teams actively building for the African market.
  • What is the process of joining the Angel League?
    We invite all interested parties to apply to join DYVVYD's Angel League. Space is limited and we have room for 10 attendees, therefore we will be screening applicants and evaluating applications. Applicants that fit the criteria will receive an email with a request for a live introduction session, after which attendees will be selected to join this 2nd cohort.
  • Do I have to be an officially accredited investor as per SEC guidelines?
    According to the Securities and Exchange Commission's guidelines, in order to invest in private US-registered companies, your income must meet or exceed the threshold of $200,000 income earned annually, or you must have a net worth of $1M. A percentage of the African-based deals within the DYVVYD community are registered in the US, while others are registered in their local jurisdictions (Europe, Asia or Africa). The SEC exists to protect the investment interests of US-based investors while international teams are typically encouraged to proceed with their local jurisdiction's definition of an accredited investor. For the purposes of this programming where you will come into the understanding of investments frameworks, you do not have to be US-accredited, however, at the close of programming, should you proceed to invest in start-up securities, local or international, we encourage appropriate accreditation as well as the advice of your legal counsel.
  • I am a ________ (fill in the blank), do I qualify?
    The Angel League series is for high net worth individuals, senior executives, subject matter professionals or well positioned entrepreneurs with disposable income, who would like to broaden their investment portfolio by investing in innovative companies building across the African continent with the potential for massive scale.
  • I'm not sure I am equipped to take this on - I don't believe I am competent enough to be considered an investor.
    To be quite frank, the DYVVYD Angel League Series contains power-packed information that we wish we had had access to when beginning our investment journey. Investing in Western (US and European) startup companies is not linear, there are quite a number of routes and paths to take. Layer in the cultural nuance of investing on the African continent now and especially with where the continent is headed in the future, anyone wanting to make a difference and support this new wave of innovation while mentoring our brilliant entrepreneurs is poised to be an investor. Whether you have never dabbled in startup investing or have a track record and are looking to pad your knowledge bank with more strategies and skills, come with whatever experience you have and bring an open mind.
  • Will in-person attendance be required?
    Your cohort is fully remote and accessible via virtual tools inclusive of video portals and social audio. All mastermind sessions (whether audio, video or conference) will be held during evening hours for our Western US attendees and early morning for our European and African time zones.
  • Who will I be learning from?
    In addition to core DYVVYD team members, experts and mentors, we are so excited to be bringing along industry executives, experienced angel investors, superstar founders, product professionals and special guests to enrich your learning experience.
  • How will the lab programming kick-off and how long will it last?
    The lab programming will officially kick-off with a launch event, Q&A session and introduction to the program. The program will run for a period of 8-10 weeks and we are very excited to welcome you all to this year's cohort!
  • What should be expected each week of the lab programming?
    The lab programming will consist of weekly mastermind sessions, webinars, guest speaker events, Q&A sessions, lunchtime founder pitch sessions and weekly coursework to help you master the material more thoroughly and put it to work effectively. You will have access to periodic live pitch sessions where entrepreneurs around the globe pitch our investor community for funding allowing you to learn the structure of a great pitch and how entrepreneurs position themselves effectively. You should also expect to work closely with your fellow attendees in labs, partnered sessions and groups in order to tear apart deal structures/terms, build relationship, form community and develop your investor persona together.
  • I have commitments (family, demanding job/business, frequent travel). How much time should I be expected to commit to this?
    We have been very intentional on ensuring that the weekly events, material and coursework are not a strain on your current schedule. The materials we provide you with the lab's programming will be available at your convenience to complete as soon as you can prior to proceeding with the following week's module. As well, mastermind sessions and guest events are recorded as well and available in your private DYVVYD profile.
