Community Growth Ventures Partners with Tech Agencies to Help Founders Turn Ideas into Products

We are glad to announce our Technology Partnerships with two great product agencies, with the aim of helping promising founders build their MVPs.

Metier Digital and Distributed will help early stage startups produce MVPs at competitive rates. For more information about using both companies services, please email

Metier Digital

Metier Digital is a team of entrepreneurs, creatives and strategists and are focused on helping founders and businesses solve everyday problems in innovative and impactful ways.


Distributed is a market leader for providing on-demand, Elastic Teams to businesses with growing digital requirements and boasts an extensive list of clients.

Both companies have ample experience and expertise to help early-stage startups take ideas and turn them into functioning MVPs.

Here are a few words from Nana Parry, CEO of Metier Digital:

“Our whole business is based around getting your MVP to market as cheaply and as quickly as possible. We build analytics into the process so you only end up investing more capital into your business based on data the market is really telling you about your idea, and how it is landing with your target users. By working with us, we want to give you the confidence that the decisions you make about your product and business are the correct ones, and to also make it affordable for you. There is a feeling of freedom we enjoy as entrepreneurs and we want to enable others to join us on the amazing journey.”

Carlo Burci, Growth Lead at Distributed said:

“We are a platform play on outsourcing. We fancy ourselves the AWS of outsourcing because we can scale engineering teams across specialisms in under 24hrs. We charge only for consumption, never a retainer. We can be a partner throughout your growth. In your early stages we provide not only the digital skill sets necessary for success, but the product guidance, research and methodologies necessary to ensure we deliver a product that resonates with customers.”

Emmanuel Aremu, Growth Director at Community Growth Ventures said:

“Working with Nana and Carlo made finalising the partnerships with each organisation a seamless process. Both companies support founders who are driven to create products their customers will love. We all at CGV look forward to working with Metier Digital and Distributed to help more founders turn their ideas into real products.”

Introducing Community Growth Ventures (CGV)


Today we are officially kicking off Community Growth Ventures (CGV).

Currently, there is two of us and we are in the process of setting up everything up, we’re excited to document the process of building an angel investment fund from the ground up.

So you’re probably wondering, who the hell are these guys and what is CGV.

Who Are We?

Denzel has experience building business across numerous sectors, his operations and finance expertise has made an impact at several companies.

Emmanuel is a growth marketer, he has the knowledge and marketing skills that has helped startups and SMEs achieve sustainable growth.

Why We Started CGV?

Black businesses and founders face disproportionate challenges in growing and scaling businesses such as access to capital, strong networks, and mentorship.

We want to be a part of the solution to these issues. So the plan is to advise, invest, help black businesses and founders to scale.

We want to be a part of the solution to these issues. So the plan is to advise, invest, help black businesses and founders to scale.

The reason why this is necessary is pretty simple. Financial freedom for our community can be facilitated with an abundance of resources — our community is lacking the resources to ensure prosperity and opportunities for future generations.

With the opportunities overflowing in the tech sector, it only makes sense for us to shift the tide our way.

We want to create an open dialogue around solving economic issues in our community, as well as provide a window into our thinking at CGV, but most importantly, make what we are trying to do accessible to those that want to do the same.

Let’s Work Together

We are looking for mentors ourselves, that would be great! And, we are recruiting for a female black tech partner (if you know anyone, please let us know).

We are also open to working with others who are solving the previously mentioned issues.

The plan is to get a small team in place as we kick things off. Be sure to follow as we will be sharing updates as we push forward.
