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.
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.
