As a seed fund and accelerator founded in South Africa, we take our responsibility towards contributing to the continent's success very seriously. We work with partners and funders across Africa to be stronger together and build a prosperous Africa for future generations.
After several successful programmes in Mauritius, Kenya, Egypt, and Tanzania, the Grindstone Africa business accelerator was launched as part of our growing African focus, bringing together startups from across the continent for our annual cohort. We work with local partners across our geographies to deliver the best possible acceleration programmes, build a pipeline for future funding opportunities and contribute to the success of startups in our ecosystem.
The Grindstone vision is to empower startups in Africa and across the globe and to create global connections from Africa to the rest of the world.
To help up to 20 startups grow and expand their business locally, regionally, and internationally through our annual online growth engineering programme.
Our Grindstone accelerators are funded by our sponsorship partners and provided free of charge to eligible participants. The availability of this opportunity may vary depending on the location of the accelerator and whether it involves an investment in the Grindstone Ventures Fund. Investing in the fund provides partial ownership in the portfolio and allows you to gain valuable experience in angel investing.
