- Join an intensive 5-month startup accelerator program power-packed with cutting-edge industry knowledge and expertise
- Accelerate your growth after the program with 1:1 support to boost sales, new market entry, and partnerships
- This program is mainly for English-speaking East and West African early-stage digital B2B SaaS startups with initial traction, a solid team, and a focus on one of these areas:
- Your team is ready to disrupt a market usually no smaller than 1 Billion USD, so reaching 10% market share will allow your team to be a $100 Million USD company.
- Your product has the capability and vision to keep growing as customers leverage your product functionalities and it has been designed and built in a way that it can scale.
- Commitment is more than words, it is not waiting for that monthly salary out of investors. You and your team have already been working full time and committed to make this happen, and have already an MVP in place.
- A full time dedicated team, with a vision in mind, the passion to survive the hard entrepreneurship life and a balanced skill-set among co-founders. They avoid to take single-founder teams in accelerator with very few exceptions.
Your application will be reviewed in 1-2 weeks and you will receive a message on Dealum platform. The email you provide in the application is going to be the main channel of communication, make sure it is correct.
