Your chance to earn a place on the Silicon Valley Accelerate Programme


African startups have the chance to earn a place on the Silicon Valley Accelerate Programme, which connects emerging technology leaders with the brightest innovators and founders in Silicon Valley.

Every year, the Silicon Valley Accelerate Programme accepts six emerging technology entrepreneurs and puts them through a five-day leadership programme in Silicon Valley.

During this time, they are given unique access inside some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative and successful businesses, as well as insight from the leaders who are shaping and building multi-billion dollar technology companies.

One startup can win a place on this programme by pitching in front of an expert panel at the Startup Summit in Edinburgh on November 1. Applications are open here until September 22.

Startups applying to enter the Silicon Valley Accelerate Competition must be technology-focused, in possession of a valid passport and available to travel during April 2018.

There will be a semi-final pitching round, while the final will be held at the Startup Summit.
