BENEFITS

Why Accelerate?

This is not your typical accelerator

It could be easy to mistake Accelerate Africa for your typical one-size fits all accelerator program, but nothing could be more different.

Second - Our program is designed to meet your needs as a founder in Africa, whether it be workshops across our 5 core areas, coaching sessions from our top advisors, or tech, legal, and finance clinics support through our clinics and office hours. Build community with other founders in our weekly Lagos / Nairobi meet ups, and for the last two weeks of the program, we will be together to prepare for the demo day taking place at the end of May, 2024.

Finally, unlike most accelerators, we don’t offer funding or take equity upon admittance. There is an opportunity that our fund Future Africa may invest alongside our other incredible investor network, to write you a pre-seed or seed stage check of $250,000 - $500,000 after the program, following our standard investment process including due diligence and an IC vote.
