On Wednesday afternoon, Nigerians took to Twitter to share their relationship heartbreak stories.

That got us wondering…

Startup founders must have a lot of investor heartbreak stories too.

Startup founders from across Africa had a lot to share

Your idea is good but…

FarmCrowdy founder and CEO, Onyeka Akumah, had a similar experience

Valuation mismatch?

Even Paystack co-founder, Ezra Olubi, had a similar story from the earliest days of the 200-million-dollar company

Just manage this money… for your cab

Cash or kind?


Internally-inflicted heartbreak?

Wait.. what?

By the way, that was Easyshop Easycook founder/CEO, Saudat Salami

Investors ghost too?

Et tu, Odun (Piggyvest co-founder/COO)?

The gods are not to blame 🤷🏽‍♀️

Startup founder?
