Our Programs

During the scouting period for the first cohort, we received a record 2200 applications and selected 11 Pan-African startups to participate in the inaugural ASIP Accelerator Program. The program began on July, 05th 2021, and participating startups had access to Startupbootcamp’s Accelerator Squared platform and other tools and networks that they needed to prove their concepts, scale their operations and in some cases, transform their business models.

Alumni Support

We scout, skill, and scale early-stage startups through intensive coaching and opportunities for pilots and Proof of Concept projects that subsequently open the doors for longer-term commercial agreements.

Upon completion of the program, startups will gain access to our extensive Global Alumni network. Furthermore, teams will be invited in our 'SBC NXT' Alumni support program, through which we provide 8 relevant Alumni services throughout the lifetime of the startups and beyond.
