Creating a new business can be a life-changing experience for you and potentially all your future customers and employees. However, the road is not easy and requires knowledge, dedication and plenty of hard work.

Report to the Boss – or be the Boss.
The first programme has been successfully completed – congratulations to all finishers. The second programme for post graduates is due to run in Spring 2017.
If you would like to be considered for the programme please register at Spring 2017 Venture Accelerator
By the end of the Venture Accelerator programme, you will have developed, tested and validated your business idea in the market. If the test is positive, you will be ready to take the next steps in building a business model and the first demonstrable product (called a minimum value product) to customers.
Even if your initial idea proves not to be viable, you will have learned how to get going with starting a new business and have a tool-set and process to help you try out the next idea!
PLUS: two fantastic awards:
The best team participation during the online programme gets an internship with Silicon Cape Network
The first prize winner will be sent to the January 2018 Startup Safari to India.
