Endeavor selected 10 entrepreneurs from five markets at its Third Virtual International Selection Panel (ISP), and welcomed the founders of Kobo360, Obi Ozor and Ife Oyedele II into its global network of high-impact entrepreneurs.
Obi, Ife and the rest of the team at Kobo360 are helping many businesses find the proper truck operators for cargo by using a digital platform to match cargo-owners with truck owners, while providing real-time updates throughout the entire delivery process. The company also offers value-added services such as trip-financing, discounts on diesel, and insurance.
“We’re excited to welcome Kobo360 into Endeavor’s network which includes some of the world’s most exciting scale-up entrepreneurs and most experienced mentors and investors. Fixing Africa’s supply chain is clearly important for commerce on the continent, and Kobo360’s rapid growth over the past 3 years is evidence that the company’s valuable services are in critical demand. Obi and Ife are inspiring founders and their relentless focus on scaling Kobo360 serves as an inspiration to high-impact entrepreneurs everywhere”, said Eloho Gihan-Mbelu, the Managing Director & CEO of Endeavor in Nigeria.
As part of Endeavor’s network, the entrepreneurs selected will gain access to comprehensive, strategic, global support services, including introductions to local and international business mentors, investors, and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address key needs.
