The Growth Accelerator is a 9 months growth programme for ambitious and committed Malawian entrepreneurs looking to significantly grow their business. The programme targets innovative, early stage and impactful ventures across Malawi and across industries. Participating entrepreneurs will receive structured business support, mentorship and access to finance.  There is a special emphasis on providing access to the financing required to unlock the growth opportunities.

The objective of the Growth Accelerator is to enhance entrepreneurial leadership and grow enterprises which will play a key role role in the sustainable growth and development of the Malawian economy. It will provide social impact especially through the creation of jobs and income generating opportunities for youth and women alongside development of the SME sector.

The programme is the first of its kind in Malawi and is implemented by mHub, Malawi’s first innovation hub and incubator, and GrowthAfrica, a leading African accelerator, in partnership with the Dutch investment firm Accesserator. It is supported by UNDP Malawi and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Malawi.
