We are thrilled to support and participate in the first AFRICELERATE Pitch Competition this Saturday 11th of January in Shanghai organized by Africelerate Team with Isabelle Hannouche, Kitso Rantao, Moses Og and Yixuan Heather Li
7 China-based and Africa-focused startups across the tech, logistics, education, and textile industries will be pitching their innovative start-up to an international audience of investors, mentors and global players in the business industry.
The goal is to accelerate African entrepreneurs who are positively impacting the African continent. This program is empowering Africa focused start-ups with the right ecosystems and support there need to thrive and succeed.
Khalid MAZOUZ, partner at NextStep Studio, will be one of the members of the great jury and we, at NextStep, are happy to sponsor a program to the winning startup!
Africelerate is a network of acceleration services providing support to African-founded startups or Africa focused startups with a positive impact on the African continent.
Their goal is to link African start-ups with global business opportunities and INTEGRATE them into the ecosystems they need to thrive, scale and and succeed.
Africelerate recognizes how strong support structures outside of funding, such as exposure to information; access to a powerful and stable business network, strategic partnerships, incubation opportunities, acceleration services, and coaching - all form part of a growth enabling climate for start-ups.
