Cohort 3 of the Pre-Accelerator Programme has graduated!


As you probably read here, last week we have been quite busy as we were the official co-host of the Global Entrepreneurship Week event Dare2Aspire. However, another exciting event that took place last week was the demo day of our pre-accelerator cohorts. For the graduation of Cohort 3 we took the opportunity to invite start-ups from previous cohorts and have all of them showcase their products and services.

Ten start-ups joined us and presented their businesses to invited guests. They had the opportunity to network, and some of them took this chance to sell their goods. Among the invited guests were also guest speakers, mentors and advisory board members that are involved in the programme.

Followed by the demo day we officially graduated Cohort 3. After speeches by Regina and Suzanne from Aurora Foundation, also Hickmatu and Babardee from Cohort 3 said a few words. We are very proud to see what they have achieved over the past months, and will continue to work with them towards their next goals.

We wish to thank everyone for joining us at the event, and congratulations to Cohort 3!
