GrowthAfrica Accelerator Programme 2018 for East African entrepreneurs

GrowthAfrica Accelerator Programme is inviting applications for its 2018 edition. This program will help you scale your business, get investment ready and develop your leadership qualities further.

If you missed the 2017 edition, bookmark us or subscribe to our newsletter and never miss another opportunity!

GrowthAfrica has extended invitation to Ethiopia and Zambia. Only entrepreneurs from Kenya and Uganda were involved last time. Applicants from all sectors will be considered but they say they have a soft spot for:

  • Agribusiness
  • Education
  • IT/Mobile Solutions
  • Fintech
  • Renewable Energy
  • Construction and Affordable Housing
  • Water and Sanitation
  • Health
  • Manufacturing
  • Renewable Energy

Only entrepreneurs who are post-revenue are eligible to apply. If this is you, be able to also show that your team has balanced skill set and have a desire to scale internationally.

The programme consists of a boot camp, workshops, technical assistance and mentorship to help you boost your growth trajectory significantly.


The total value of resources your business stands to benefit from the above is in excess of Sh.5 million. As such, if this GrowthAfrica Accelerator Programme helps you to either double your revenue, triple your profit or help you raise at least sh.25 million you will share in the success.

GrowthAfrica is asking beneficiaries to pay them either 1% of revenue, 2% of equity or 3% of the investment they helped you to raise.
