GrowthAfrica in partnership with Hivos and VC4Africa kicked off 2015 Green Pioneer Accelerator programme (GPA) with 11 entreprenuers. Through the 14-week cohort based acceleration programme, GrowthAfrica has helped entrepreneurs sharpen their business acumen with the help of highly experienced facilitators, peer to peer sharing, mentorship support, external speaker and experts’ forum, networking opportunities and access to funding opportunities.
The climax of the programme will be a venture forum for Green Pioneers to be held on Tuesday June 9, 2015 from 09:00-13:00 at GrowthAfrica office.
During the forum, 11 entrepreneurs will pitch to development partners, philanthropists, financiers, angel investors and venture capitalists in readiness to access funding and establish B2B partnership or get PPP opportunities to scale their impact.
The day will climax with a key note address from Peter Scott, Founder of BURN manufacturing. See his profile.
Thereafter we shall have an opportunity to interact one-on-one with the entrepreneurs, view their products and discuss business while enjoying lunch together.
