MASHAV & Make-IT in Africa Joint Accelerator Programme
WE PROMOTE DIGITAL INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT
The Start-up Accelerators in the Entrepreneurial
is a 10 day training programme
for 12 African start-up enablers
from 4 countries
More than 440 tech hubs are currently operating all over Africa. With this enormous number, different hubs implement various acceleration and incubation programmes. These programmes aim to provide the necessary essentials and principles for start-ups to support them with right trainings and courses to overcome obstacles start-ups face in their early stage.
However, intermediaries that contribute to the positive development of start-ups are yet often lacking trainings to develop their skill set further. Therefore MASHAV – Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation – and the Tech Entrepreneurship Initiative ‘Make-IT in Africa’ offer the joint training Start-up Accelerators in the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem.
This course will provide participants with skills and knowledge on various points like ecosystem development, community building and entrepreneur support.
