MEST Incubator 2017


The Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST), founded in Accra, Ghana in 2008, has set out to prove that a new generation of young, ambitious entrepreneurs can come from Africa.

MEST alumni have developed solutions addressing local and global markets, received outside follow-on funding from global investors, and have gained admittance to top accelerator programs such as Y-Combinator, 500 Startups and TechStars.

OTHER KEY DATES

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
