Startupbootcamp launches in Cape Town

First Africa-based program launched April 2017

Last Update 25 April 2017

Startupbootcamp welcomes the opening of their first African-based programme in Cape Town. This global industry-focused accelerator group has 18 cohorts across 13 countries and will be the first ever run programme in Africa.

Startupbootcamp is a worldwide network of industry-focused accelerators which allows  startups to access an international network of relevant partners, mentors and investors in their sector. The initiative started in 2010 and operates globally with Cape Town being the first African-based programme.

The programme offers all startup from around the world the opportunity to apply and be apart of the three-month pan-African cohort run. The three month program will begin by accelerating 10 startups in September 2017 with the support of leading corporations such as PwC, RCS, and BNP Paribas.

The aim of the Startupbootcamp is on staups in blockchain, payment solutions, connected devices, asset management and capital markets, integrated supply chain, retail-tech, e-commerce, alternative financing, identity management, digital connectivity, data analytics and enabling technologies.

The organization is looking for mentors to support entrepreneurs, and has opened this up to the public with the help of filling out a mentor form. Applications are available until 14 July 2017.
