#Africa inCcelerate programme to back Ugandan startups


A new accelerator programme – inCcelerate – has launched in Uganda, offering startups access to mentorship, training and at least US$10,000 in funding.

inCcelerate, for which applications are open here until November, is offering startups access to a full-time, three-month programme that offers a practical pathway to design the best possible products through a hands-on curriculum.

“We are creating a culture where prototyping and tinkering are the norm and a fast fail is acceptable on the way to business success. Entrepreneurs will be immersed in this culture while engaging with a design curriculum,” said co-founder Moris Atwine.

“Together with mentoring by experienced startup founders, and a space to create, model, tinker and explore while benefiting from critical collaboration, entrepreneurs in the inCcelerate programme will find a step-by-step process to navigate the startup wilderness.”

Selected startups will become “enMembers”, working with their peers to refine their skills. The first programme begins in January.

“Our work involves increasing the capacity of startups to collaborate, creating avenues for multi-directional learning, both formal and and informal, and a space where constructive feedback is welcomed,” Atwine said.
