The Barclays Accelerator, powered by Techstars, is proud to open its doors in Cape Town, offering a gateway into many of the fastest growing global economies.
Recognised as one of the world’s economic powerhouses, Cape Town will cater to companies addressing opportunities in Africa and emerging markets.
Our 13-week programme will tap into this strong financial centre and offer mentorship, support and a wealth of money-can’t-buy knowledge and experience. Startups will also gain access to our mentors, industry experts, and Barclays executives globally. We’re looking for a diverse group of businesses, both from within the African continent and from around the globe, to join us and help shape the future of financial services.
