SEED and SWITCH-Africa Green invite you to apply for the next round of the Starter Months in Kenya, Ghana, Uganda and South Africa.The workshops will be from July to September, see below for the exact dates in your country.

The SAG-SEED Starter promotes the incubation of new eco-enterprises. Setting up a business is both an exciting and challenging task: Turning an idea into a product or service customers actually want to buy, requires not only a deep-dive into the market, but also business skills and bringing together the right team and partners. Considering all aspect can be challenging, therefore, SEED supports young teams of entrepreneurs with innovative ideas through the SAG-SEED Starter Months.

What to expect? During a 3-day DEVELOP and a 2-day REFINE workshop the selected teams will receive advisory services to work on their business ideas. We want every idea to be turned into a business! The period between the two workshops will be used for facilitated testing of the idea with potential customers and partners. In the end, teams are ready to go public with their ideas.
