Here we go for the African roadshow of the startup acceleration program “Impulse”. After Casablanca, the first information session of this program started last Tuesday in Accra for Ghanaian startups.
“Impulse” was launched by the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), the OCP Group and its subsidiary OCP Africa, and designed with MassChallenge, a worldwide startup acceleration network. The goal is to support start-ups working on Africa’s challenges in four priority sectors (AgriTech, biotechnology, mining technologies, materials sciences and nano-sciences).
This session served to inform the Ghanaian entrepreneurial ecosystem of program components and to invite interested startups to apply. Recall that startups participating in “Impulse” will notably benefit from mentoring and coaching OCP experts, UM6P professors and mentors from MassChallenge and the ecosystem.
Benefits include access to business opportunities and participation in a Demo Day scheduled for April 8, 2020 that will allow the winners to share $ 250,000.
