We Help Entrepreneurs


Akro is a company dedicated to helping entrepreneurs turn ideas into businesses. We offer events, venture funding and consulting services, and we have a painfully practical attitude towards entrepreneurship.

Our Mission

We help entrepreneurs think bigger, build better, move faster.

Our Values

In the same ethos we live by: “It takes a village to raise a child”, so we believe it takes a community to grow a business.

We believe it’s at the tip of the branch where the new growth comes. So innovation and ground breaking thinking is part of this value. Creators of the Future is our by-line.

We are committed to our co-workers wellbeing & growth, and to our own growth. We are committed to pursuing our passion of holding hands with our partners, our friends, our colleagues. We are committed to finding joy on this journey and making the hard work fun.

We know the importance of being a bulldog when the going gets tough, leaning on each other for support and working it to the core. We believe in providing the support so that resilience can be nurtured and the startup can stay focused.

We know that all partnerships require trust which can only come through transparency, with honesty at the heart of this. Yip, we got this covered in one word.
