Professionals that do more

Growth Accelerator offers an opportunity for industry professionals and experts to mentor a group of passionate entrepreneurs. Individuals commit to one on one mentorship sessions for 6 months. Mentors act as sounding boards and strategic advisors for entrepreneurs as they implement their growth plans.

Are you an Industry Expert Looking for a Mentorship Opportunity? Here is the process

Entrepreneurs join the programme in January and undergo 6-months of technical assistance from Growth Accelerator. The key output for the technical assistance is a realistic, milestone based growth plan that entrepreneurs implement in the coming 2 to 3 years. The mentor’s role then is to act as a sounding board and provide insight on the successful implementation of the strategy on the other.
