Tigo Rwanda’s startup accelerator, Think has announced its three-month incubation program, think Accelerated.
The program is designed to be a fast-tracked three-month incubation program as against its usual six month acceleration program. But both programmes will run concurrently.
Disrupt Africa reports that four startups have already been selected for the program.
“Think Accelerated enables us to attract a wider range of entrepreneurs and tech start ups who will benefit from a fast-track incubator offering, keeping Africa at the forefront of innovation,” says Think’s investment manager, Paul Soko.
The four startups selected for the inaugural Think Accelerated program include Asuqu from Nigeria; a marketplace for startups in the service industry, Esaja from Zimbabwe; a business to business marketplace, SafeMotos from Rwanda; a Uber for African motorbikes and Team Tigo from Rwanda; comprising Tigo Rwanda staff who are tasked with developing digital solutions across Tigo platforms.
Participating startups will receive funding, startup specific training curriculum, Tigo resources and opportunity to interact with global tech mentors.
The accelerator program will begin next month.
