THE NEED

THE NEED

Talent knows of no borders.

Disruptive startups may be born everywhere.

Absence of investment, capital and networks limit entrepreneurial potential of disruptive impact startups especially in developing economies.

Tech startups crave for relevant talent.

While very few entrepreneurial ecosystems flourish, most cities and countries are left out of the new knowledge economy.

WAF ACCELERATOR

WAF Accelerator is an online  bootcamp program focused on high-impact high-risk startups willing to raise seed investments and reach the market. The program is focused on early stage startups or University spin-offs having developed a disruptive technology and looking for a go-to-market.

We don’t work as a usual accelerator, in batches. We cherry pick the best projects and accompany the company in the first steps. In order to select these projects we publish vertical challenges to which the best startups are invited.
