French South African Tech Labs opens calls for applications to second cohort

Cape Town-based incubator and accelerator French South African Tech Labs (FSAT Labs) has opened calls for applications to its second class of entrepreneurs, with applications set to close on 20 October.

To apply, interested tech entrepreneurs have to fill in an application form, build a pitch deck, and e-mail the submission documents to FSAT Labs.

Selected startups will be invited to a pitch competition at Africarena Conference 2017, where the top three pitches will win entry into FSAT Labs’ six-month programme set to kick off in early November.

The programme aims to help the selected entrepreneurs turn their ideas into minimum viable products and ultimately sustainable businesses. FSAT Labs particularly focuses on digital innovation around the Internet of Things.

FSAT Labs’ partners and experts will mentor and coach the selected startups. The programme will also provide participating startups with access to angel investors and venture capitalists.

Selected startups will also benefit from legal, digital, and strategy services among others.

FSAT Labs works in partnership with the Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA) and international technology firm and private incubator Methys, and aims to act as a gateway between France and South Africa.

Launched earlier this year in Februaruy, FSAT Labs incubated three startups in its first cohort.
