KINGSON CAPITAL PARTNERS WITH AKRO offer SA startups with a unique international boot camp opportunityVenture Central email@example.com
Kingson Capital, a South African Venture Capital Company committed to providing venture capital for High-Growth Tech and Black-Owned SME’s is passionate about clearing the financial hurdles for SME’s in order to sustain their startup momentum. Backed by corporates and international investors, who have shown particular interest in investing in the South African tech and SME space, the organisation pairs investment with business support through its investment structure.
Now Kingson Capital, along with AKRO Accelerate, is offering the opportunity of a lifetime to South African startups. On 28 and 29 August 2019, the partners will be hosting an unprecedented event where 20 pre-selected Proudly South African startups can pitch their unique business ideas in the hopes of being selected for an intense, two-week boot camp in the United States where they will learn not only how to refine and grow their businesses, but also how to sustain their venture effectively.
The ripple effects of being chosen to be a part of this initiative are staggering. Selected startups will spend two weeks at a boot camp in Silicon Valley in the USA being mentored by some of the most significant business minds. The learnings that they will take away from this boot camp will enable them to re-pitch their business idea upon their return, where the final innovative startups will be chosen and given an investment injection that will take their idea and cement it into a fully functioning business. Kingson will be providing all investment capital for the successful startups in their unwavering effort to support early-stage venture ecosystems.
Entrepreneurs who are interested in being a part of the initiative can still submit their entries. They will need to bring both their drive and their ability to be coachable and also be able to take critical feedback. On pitch day, they will be expected to submit a 3-minute pitch and a summary sheet of their concept.
