Afribiz Accelerator


Afribiz  Accelerator (ACCEL) is the global-local (glocal) hub for ecosystem economies, which are dynamic, fluid, inclusive ecosystems of people, communities, businesses and other stakeholders who have a key stake or role in business, trade, and economies.

ACCEL’s primary audience are entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small to medium size businesses. ACCEL also serves other key stakeholders that are linked to its primary audience in ecosystems, including funders, investors, economic development agencies, and middle market and large companies.
ACCEL’s core programs revolve around a venture maturation, or development, process and methodology called Venture Cultivation,which allows us to capacitize, assist, and support entrepreneurs, and their teams, to mature their enterprises, or ventures, from idea to concept to seed to start-up to growth, as well as assist existing SMEs to drive sustainability and growth. Venture Cultivation also serves to provide a common framework in which others in entrepreneurial ecosystems can monitor, evaluate, and assist in a consistent, systematic, and rigorous manner.
ACCEL’s business model sits in a wholly unique space of business lifecycle accelerators embedded in ecosystem economies as ecosystem facilitators.
