The 3 week programme will culminate in a Pitch Event where we’ll connect you with industry insider judges who will aid with feedback & connections.
The winner of the Pitch Event will receive $1000 seed investment into starting their business.
NB. The spend of prize funds will require consent from BongoHive to ensure wise choices are made for the growth of said business. There is no maximum or minimum number of founders per team however we prefer small teams over individuals as most successful startups have a few founders. The Discover pre-accelerator programme is open to men and women alike and we are strongly encouraging women to apply. Women are 49.59% of the world’s population so women should launch 49.59% of the startups.
