  • Growth Program

    The Growth Program is a Virtual Three Month Post-Acceleration program focused on Growth.

     

    The program is designed to help startups build a Growth Team and implement a Growth Methodology in order to support scaling up the venture and raise Series A and beyond.

     

    We have mastered the technique of organising an entire acceleration program virtually. So, rather than taking you out of your market, we bring the expertise to you so that you may remain close to your customers and your team.

  • Process

    1. Application & Screening

    Applications are open until June 14, 2020, where startups that fit the criteria can submit their application.

    2. Selection

    The acceleration program team will conduct online and face-to-face interviews with the pre-selected startups before the final selection will be announced by end of June, 2020.

     

    3. Kick-off Webinars

    The Program kicks off with an intensive week of webinars with the main goal to define clear OKRs, setting up tools and building the foundation for growth.

    4. Growth Program

    The program runs for 12 weeks through a series of 12 modules focused on Growth and Series A fundraising through weekly 1:1 mentoring sessions and webinars with subject experts
