GrowthAfrica Accelerator Programme 2016 for Early Stage Entrepreneurs in Kenya & Ethiopia

Application Deadline: August 31st 2016

The GrowthAfrica accelerator programme is demanding, but so is success! For six months you will be tearing up your business model and all its constituents, analyzing them to bits with the help of a team of skilled and experienced business executives, successful entrepreneurs, maven investors and the GrowthAfrica team, who themselves are experienced entrepreneurs, consultants, mentors and advisors to successful business across the region.

Through the initial 5-day boot camp and the subsequent six 3-day workshops we will establish the foundation and equip you with tools to diagnose your business and devise strategies to optimize your business in all conceivable areas. After each workshop you will work in-company with the assistance of your mentors, facilitators, growth catalysts and sages to implement your new strategies and innovations – boosting your growth trajectory in significant ways.

Requirements:

As long as you are committed to leveraging your business to create positive impact in the communities you work in, either through your products or services, or through your business model, we are interested in working with you – particularly if:

  • You already have an innovative product or service in the market and paying customers
  • You have a team of co-founders with a balanced skillset and who are ambitious, talented, committed and willing to learn from their peers and the GrowthAfrica team
  • You have a burning desire to make your business the next big thing and scale internationally and make your business an impactful multimillion dollar success story
  • Your business has products and services addressing environmental sustainability; work with IT, mobile and financial technologies; is an agribusiness, have a product or service relating to the construction sector, or deliver essential services (health, education, water & sanitation)

Worth

The total value of these copious resources is in excess of USD 50,000 per startup – but we naturally do not expect you to pay this upfront. But we do think it is fair that the success we inevitably will co-create with you is shared – so we ask all startups to pay us subsequently by sharing:

  • 1% of your revenue +
  • 2% of your equity +
  • 3% of investments raised

We only expect this from you if we help you:

  • Double your revenue or
  • Triple your profit or
  • Help you raise at least USD 250,000
