Startup90, a start-up accelerator founded by Sandheep Ramluckan, has revealed eight startups in South Africa that have been chosen to receive months of working space, mentorship and entrepreneurship development.

The accelerator program aims at using the web and mobile technologies to solve social and economic challenges, which are recurring decimals in Africa. Some of the innovations these selected start-ups are going to present range from mobile shopping, free parking to service delivery.

“The programme highlights funding readiness as a central theme and combines entrepreneurship development with specialist mentoring, offered by experienced tech founders, delivered in a collaborative workspace environment,” Ramluckan says.

Participating startups pledge three months to the programme where they obtain access to prominent mentors, co-working space, networking events, tools as well as business support. These are the list of startups chosen for this year’s accelerator program –beginning in March 3- out of 86 applicants.

“We challenge our applicants to solve a problem in their community at the same time making their products relevant to the general African market which is young and mobile-oriented,” he says further.

Startup 90 is a business accelerator for seed and early stage technology startups.

Our former colonial overlords, the Brits as they’re affectionately known, are also at it again. Since 2016, they’ve contorted themselves into several unseemly shapes as they […]
