DoBox is a project aimed at connecting entrepreneurs to the world. It is Namibia’s newest business incubator and entrepreneurial co-working space.

Dololo is developing the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Namibia, whose mission is to empower future generations by providing spaces and supporting networks that enable entrepreneurs to solve real-world problems.

It also provides services to forward-looking companies and institutions and connects them to young talent by facilitating internal innovation workshops, events and training.

Dololo’s co-founder and CEO Tim Wucher expressed his excitement at having a dynamic company like Paratus join the project as a connectivity sponsor. “We welcome their enthusiasm to support Dololo by connecting entrepreneurs at DoBox to the world through fibre-fast access to the Internet,” he added.

As a private-owned telecommunications business, Paratus understands the entrepreneur’s need to access technology to grow Namibia’s economy. It has a physical presence in Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia and provides connectivity services to over 20 African countries.

Paratus Namibia managing director Andrew Hall said Namibia has its fair share of challenges being a developing country. “Our entrepreneurs are a gateway to the future growth of our economy,” he noted.

“We recognise the difficulties that face our entrepreneurs but are confident that through our collaboration with Dololo, we can bridge the gap of access to technology and the Internet,” he explained.

According to Barney Harmse, Paratus Group CEO, Paratus was born from the vision of a handful of entrepreneurs that decided to make a stand in Africa.

“Needless to say, those entrepreneurs are still employed in the group across the regions and that speaks of our pride and commitment to the dream. Namibia is our home and we are proud of the infrastructure that we have built and will continue to build under economic difficulty in the region,” he stressed.
