About our Accelerator Program

The program is aimed at building sustainable and scalable startups in Cameroon by providing seed funding, training and mentorship for start-up growth while preparing them for venture capital investments. With the low rate/number of startups ready for VCs funding within our communities, ANC stock investment ltd discovered that about 95% of the startups fail not for the lack of effort or ideas for growth, but because they miss out on the fundamentals of business.

It is based on these challenges and facts that we launched the Start-up accelerator program which is a unique way to support early-stage, growth-driven companies through training, education, mentorship, and financing. Startups enter the accelerators for a fixed-period of time (6 Six Months) as part of a co-hort of companies.
What stage of startups do we accept?

All of the founders we accept have a solid product in market or have a prototype that is very innovative and ready for testing. At least half of the startups we accept have significant traction and revenue. We do not invest in business plans, decks, or vain ideas.

How it works

The accelerator program is one with a process of intense, rapid, and immersive education, practice and test markets activities aimed at accelerating the life cycle of the young innovative companies, compressing years’ worth of learning-by-doing into just a few months to accelerate growth as well as to help these young innovative companies build a strong founding team and business model while investing to drive growth.

“The number one reason start-ups fail today is because the founders and team members are not committed enough and they fail to understand the fact that Running a business isn't a part-time job and we are looking for those people than can think in the context of “ I’m going to do whatever it takes to make this dream a success with a driven passion in the accelerator program.” Ambe Nickson Che, Founder & CEO
