African startups have been selected to participate in the Microsoft – GreenHouse Scaleup Accelerator Program.
Microsoft and GreenHouse Capital teamed up earlier to offer pre-series stage A stage African startups access to new markets and technology infrastructure. They also have funding opportunities that will allow them to scale their solutions aggressively and to leverage the networks and knowledge gained through the program.
In line with the selection of 10,000 African startups to be supported by Microsoft over the next five years, GreenHouse Capital has disclosed the 13 startups chosen from East and West Africa.
These startups will be eligible for pre-series A funding, which includes access to new markets, technology infrastructure and funding opportunities to scale up their solutions.
Scaleup Accelerator Program will be open to startups and their founders for six weeks. It will include a demo session, as well as bringing investors from around the world to meet the founders.
