MISSION

The SABLE Accelerator aims to further South Africa’s economic interests through global knowledge transfer and the creation of a trusted expert network of expatriate South Africans willing to contribute back to their country of birth through coaching, mentoring, consulting, advising, teaching, training, funding, or donating.

The international partnership group, The Sable Accelerator LLC (SABLE), is dedicated to helping South African entrepreneurs, new venture start-ups, academic institutions, and companies commercialize technology innovations, promote and protect intellectual property, fund new business concepts, finance growth, as well as expand into global markets.

A core group of SABLE founders and consultants is based in Silicon Valley, the world’s premier destination for new venture formation, incubation, funding, accelerated growth, liquidity and technology partnering, or licensing. These individuals, all born, schooled, or raised in South Africa, have global business and life experience, are based in North America, and offer a wide range of capabilities and professional competencies.
