A free three-month course that offers early-stage entrepreneurs the tools to commercialise their idea and refine their business.
Join a community of tech entrepreneurs driving Africa's development!
The TechTribe Accelerator (TTA) is a new online accelerator and virtual mentorship programme, for post-revenue tech and IP driven ventures across the SADC region. The programme is designed for ventures who primarily seek to become grant and/or investment ready. It's offering includes: online learning; virtual mentorship; access to investment opportunities; and a peer network. The first cohort of entrepreneurs is generously funded by the Southern Africa Innovation Support Programme (SAIS 2).
Nine investment readiness modules will be delivered via an online learning management system (LMS). Each module includes instructional videos, examples, webinars, and assignments, building an investment case piece-by-piece.
Thirty ventures from the first accelerator cohort will be selected to receive mentorship by experienced mentors, who will provide guidance and feedback as the entrepreneur develops their investment case and becomes pitch-ready.
Access to investment
Ventures that are investment ready will have access to private deal rooms and a select number will stand a chance to pitch to investors at the 2020 SA Innovation Summit. Investment opportunities will be shared with all entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs will have access to an online peer network that enables peer-to-peer learning and information sharing, such as investment and collaboration opportunities.
