SheLeadsAfrica, facilitator of the  African female-centred business pitch competition, SLAPitch competition has announced the commencement of a more robust replacement to its pitch competition called the SLA Accelerator programme.  

The SLA Accelerator programme just like the SLAPitch competition will be open to female entrepreneurs looking to scale their businesses. The programme is a 3-month residence programme where entrepreneurs will be trained by the She Leads Africa team and a network of business leaders and experts. 

According to a statement on the website, the Accelerator programme was birthed because the SLAPitch competition gave no mentoring opportunities to entrepreneurs.

“The Accelerator programme will end with a demo day where businesses will pitch to a room filled with local and international investors. The winning businesses will also win $10,000 from She Leads Africa. This prize will be disbursed as a grant or as an equity investment from She Leads Africa”, a release on the website reads.

Meanwhile, due to harsh economic realities across the continent, this maiden edition of the programme will only be available for businesses based in Nigeria. However, as things improve, there are plans to expand to other African ecosystem.
