Successful graduates of our Academy Modules also qualify to participate.If selected, they compete in a live event to pitch their business to a panel of business leaders, influencers, and investors. The winner receives grant-based seed capital. And in participating countries, outstanding finalists are invited to join Sinapis’ Fast Track Accelerator business accelerator program.
