If you’ve got a startup that’s still in the ‘concept’ stage and want to make it a reality, you might want to take a look at the Telkom FutureMakers InnoTech Programme.
You’d better hurry though as applications for the intensive ‘from concept to market’ process, run at the Woodstock Bandwidth Barn, Telkom’s Cape Town FutureHub close on Friday, 20 May.
InnoTech begins in June 2016. The first eight weeks are your ‘Pitch Deck Journey’, addressing your business fundamentals and getting you pitching-strong.
Those businesses that progress through phase 1 will go through an MVP bootcamp before entering phase 2, a 12-week process which sees you getting in front of customers and refining your business proposition, culminating in a presentation to potential funders.
According to a press release sent to Ventureburn, the programme will also see attendees meet successful entrepreneurs on Founder Fridays, make site visits to Cape Town start-ups and network at the hottest IT events in the City.
The programme is particularly interested in startups in the following arenas:
- A B2B solution of any type
- Gaming and media
Interested participants can expect to spend around 10 hours a week of seminars and mentorships at the Woodstock Barn.
Applications can be found online.
