How to prepare

Accelerator Squared is a fully online platform that SBC introduced during the Covid pandemic. It gives startups access to the entire library of content, group workshops, 1:1 mentoring, collaborative meetings with Entrepreneurs in Residence, and invite-only discussion forums with founders from around the world.

A physical Demo Day where startup founders present their disruptive solutions to a large audience of media, investors, corporate partners, and industry stakeholders marks the culmination of the hybrid program, which starts in Dakar.

The 10 participating startups will receive benefits from AWS, Google Cloud Services, Hubspot, and many more companies, totaling more than EUR 500,000. Each firm receives a financial investment of EUR 15,000 from ASIP Accelerator.
