Why Should You Join An Accelerator Program?

So, you have your business idea that can change the world. You’ve already started implementing it and now you want to grow your startup to greater heights. I’m sure you’re wondering how you can grow fast and efficiently. While scrolling through your social media, you may have seen a few accelerator programs. Should you join one? Here are a few reasons why you should join an accelerator program.

Access to funding

Getting funding for your startup can be quite a headache, but it doesn’t have to be. Instead of going through the troubles of looking for investors, writing emails, making calls, setting up meetings and encountering plenty of rejections, try joining a startup accelerator. By joining an accelerator, you can tap into their vast networks of venture capitalists, angel investors, trusts and foundations to get funding for your startup.

Ecosystem of support

An entrepreneur’s journey can be very lonely, but you don’t have to go through it alone. In an accelerator, you will have unlimited access to mentors, coaches, hubs that can support you in your journey. You will also get to meet fellow founders who are treading the same path, and you can build each other.

Grow your skills

As a founder, there are many skills you need to polish up to help you run your startup. From managing your finances to pitching to investors, managing and motivating your team, you need to have these skills for your startup to thrive. An accelerator will provide you with the coaching you require to grow these skills.

Access to top-notch mentors

 “A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” Bob Proctor

Having a mentor is overlooked, yet it’s vital in your entrepreneurial journey. As an entrepreneur that’s starting, there’s a lot that you don’t know about the business landscape. Accelerators have vast networks of mentors who will provide you with the guidance you need to succeed. They will push you beyond your limits and help you grow to the next level.

Trust, credibility and reputation.

Trust is the major foundation for establishing relationships, especially with investors, that is often overlooked. It’s important to show investors that your startup is credible and trustworthy. 

Investors are more likely to invest in startups that have gone through accelerator programs because they know that these programs build competence among the founders. They feel that their investment is safer in the hands of founders who have undergone thorough training to grow their business. After all, who does not want sure returns on investment?

Now that you know why you should join an accelerator, how soon will you join one?

The State of Entrepreneurship in Blue Economy

The World Bank defines “Blue Economy” as the range of economic sectors and related policies that together determine whether the use of oceanic resources is sustainable – with the core objective of utilising the resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods and jobs, as well as ocean ecosystem health.

It is not a single activity but rather a collection of activities across multiple sectors and business areas that work in harmony in order to maximize output from the planet’s most abundant resource (water) while enhancing its productivity and conserving its natural status at the same time. It is for this reason that the United Nations adopted the marine ecosystem as part of its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

SDG 14 refers to “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development.” There is a general acknowledgement that the marine ecosystem has tremendous potential to transform economies. The world’s oceans, seas, lakes and rivers are estimated to have a value of US$ 1.5 trillion a year – with some 350 million jobs linked to fisheries and an estimate 80% of global trade by volume carried by sea.

In the case of Africa, the value is estimated to be USD 296 billion and 49 million jobs have been created on account of aquatic ecosystems. Africa stands the best chance in exploiting aquatic resources for economic growth. According to a publication by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA)
