Adansonia Accelerator Program 2017 for Entrepreneurs

Deadline: April 30, 2017

Adansonia Accelerator Program 2017 is a training program for entrepreneurs in Africa that connects them with investors. A number of investors have partnered with the Adansonia program. These investors rate the business proposals submitted by participants. Entrepreneurs with the top-rated proposals get the opportunity to pitch to these investors, and after the pitching event, the investors decide whom to invest in.


Aspiring entrepreneurs and existing small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Africa will have the opportunity to:

  • Take an online course on entrepreneurship;
  • Make new connections and get feedback;
  • Pitch to investors and get funding;
  • Learn more at a top business school in Milan.


  • Participants must be based in Africa. It doesn’t matter where;
  • Aspiring entrepreneurs are welcome. So are entrepreneurs with an existing business that they wish to expand;
  • They should be able to view videos and to run an application on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, or Linux.
