Helping founders build redemptive ventures
The Accelerator is a mentor-driven, cross-sector training programme that gives entrepreneurs access to inspiring peers, generous mentors, a global network, and value-aligned funders. We look for ventures (business and non-profit) that demonstrate the potential to develop scalable solutions to some of Africa’s most pressing concerns.
Through our Accelerator, we help founders become redemptive leaders to guide their ventures to grow their impact. We believe that a community of value-aligned people are uniquely suited to leverage the power of business for the good of their neighbors—building sustainable ventures that renew culture, bless their people and partners, and embody the love and grace of the gospel.
If you are Christian founder looking to join a community who will speak truth and life into your venture and personal life, apply for the 2023 Triga Accelerator today!
WHAT TO EXPECT
We annually select 12 ventures to form part of the Accelerator. There are three events, totalling 12 in-person days. We provide a platform for “round-table” discussions and extensive one-on-one mentor sessions, culminating in a public pitch event to potential funders.
The Triga Community is one with deep rooted-relationships based on integrity and trust. It is an energetic, assertive, safe space with faith as the common thread that connects us all.
