Back to work with Cohort 1

26.08.20

Since last week, the office of Aurora is again open daily! We could not be happier to have the whole team back together in Freetown and continue to work on our projects bursting with new energy. While still experiencing some big rains (let’s enjoy them while we can!), we have gathered Cohort 1 back together to finish what we started last February – the Pre-Accelerator programme. With only 6 weeks left in the programme, we have taken into account their progress from the past months (we stayed in touch although the programme as a whole paused) and adjusted our curriculum to fit their individual needs. We are looking forward to be focusing on topics such as finance for entrepreneurs, social capital, funding, and, last but not least, pitching!

As the programme of Cohort 1 only has a few weeks left, we have also opened up applications for our next cohort, starting in November 2020. For this next cohort, we invite up to 10 startups to take part in our 4-month pre-accelerator. The application form can be requested on +232 79 72 85 74.
