FOUNDERSSAUCE has a strong track record of supporting African startups, and its community will be able to help PAPERSHARE connect with even more top talent across the continent.
According to Mashudu Modau, the CEO of FOUNDERSSAUCE, the acquisition of PAPERSHARE is a significant step in the company’s mission to build a strong ecosystem of tools for African startups. “We believe that PAPERSHARE has tremendous potential to help connect startups with the best non-developer talent in South Africa and beyond,” he said. “We’re excited to work with the PAPERSHARE team to build on their success and help even more startups find the right people to drive their growth.”
The founders of PAPERSHARE, Ububele Kopo, is equally excited about the acquisition. “We started Generalist Jobs to help non-developer talent find great jobs at startups, and we’re thrilled to be joining forces with FOUNDERSSAUCE to take our platform to the next level,” said Kopo. “We believe that this acquisition will allow us to expand our reach and help even more people find their dream jobs in the startup world.”
The acquisition of PAPERSHARE by FOUNDERSSAUCE is a significant development in the African startup ecosystem, and is expected to have a positive impact on the entire industry.
