The Incubate Malawi programme is here to support youthful early-stage Malawian entrepreneurs with skills, know-how, network, mentors, and access to funding. Incubate Malawi will run in cohorts of 30 to 35 individuals per incubation programme cycle.
The Public-Private Partnership Commission has partnered with GrowthAfrica, a leading business growth partner in Africa and mandated by The Government of Malawi to manage Digital Malawi programmes through a World Bank loan facility extending finance.
GrowthAfrica’s “Incubate Malawi” programme looks to use digital technologies to drive innovation, economic growth, access to services, job creation, markets, and information.
Youthful entrepreneurs participating in the programme will receive further business acceleration support equiping them with the right set of skills necessary for running a modern successful business. This includes skills in business growth strategy, business models, and access to investment. Participants will also have access to co-working spaces where they will apply the skills learned throughout the training.
A select number of outstanding entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch for $5,000 grant funding. Once the programme is completed, there shall be Go-To-Market support targeting a select number of high-potential graduates. Applications can be submitted at www.incubatemalawi.com before the end of 13th June 2021.
