Join the Waste to Value Accelerator!


The BESTSELLER FOUNDATION has partnered with Intellecap to create a “Waste to Value” Accelerator. This accelerator program seeks to support enterprises as well as build strong networks for start-ups and investors in the Waste economy across East Africa.

Sub-Saharan Africa is projected to be one of the fastest areas for waste growth in the world over the next 40 years, due to rapid urbanisation and population growth. Now more than ever, there is an urgent need for reducing waste, reusing products, and recycling resources to catalyse a more circular and healthy world.

Are you an entrepreneur with a disruptive solution within the waste sector? We would like to help your start-ups grow. Participating start-ups will get a chance to:

Become a part of a unique cohort in East Africa: Up to 10 selected start-ups will get an opportunity to become a part of the cohort in East Africa – and take part in shaping a community of founders, investors, mentors, and experts working to address the social and environmental challenges of waste.

Receive business advisory support and mentoring: Selected start-ups will receive bespoke support and mentoring over a period of 6-9 months to strengthen their teams and business performance.

Pitch to investors and gain access to potential strategic partners: Selected startups will receive investment readiness support and get a chance to pitch to BESTSELLER FOUNDATION and other investors for investments of up to USD $ 100,000.

If you are ready to accelerate your start-up, want to make Africa cleaner, greener & more circular and if you match the criteria, apply to the Waste to Value Accelerator today!
