OceanHub Africa has concluded its fourth cohort with a bootcamp for the six startups that participated in the eight-month accelerator programme.
OceanHub Africa aims to support and nurture environmentally conscious, profit-driven businesses that aim to combat global warming, overexploitation, and pollution of the ocean.
Its accelerator programme, which has just concluded its fourth edition, connects such startups with a network of highly qualified stakeholders and facilitators, and provides them with sustainable pathways towards stable profits and scalable growth opportunities throughout Africa.
Six startups participated in its latest programme, namely Kenya’s Kuza Freezer, Tanzania’s Healthy Seaweed Co, Reunion’s Reef Pulse, Egypt’s ReNile, Tunisia’s Tunisia Baits, and South Africa’s Akili.
The eight-month focused on personal, product, and business development, while preparing ventures for investment opportunities. It concluded with an in-person bootcamp in Cape Town earlier this month, where the six startups underwent a week of intensive training aimed to accelerate their journey toward investor readiness and sustainable business growth. On the final day of the bootcamp, participating startups showcased their innovations and pitched for potential investments in front of a mock-investment panel.
