Are you ready to skyrocket your business to new heights? ScaleX is thrilled to announce the launch of our transformative Startup Accelerator Program in the vibrant city of Cape Town. From March - May 2024. We are on a mission to empower and propel visionary entrepreneurs like you towards unparalleled success.

Why The ScaleX Accelerator?

At ScaleX, we believe in the power of innovation and the potential of every entrepreneurial dream. Our accelerator program is designed to provide the support, resources, and mentorship needed to turn your business aspirations into a reality.  Our approach to the accelerator program is distinct—no pre-made, one-size-fits-all agendas. At ScaleX, we begin with a blank canvas, crafting a bespoke three-month program tailored precisely to your business needs. We don't set the programme, you set the programme yourself!



  1. Free Accommodation for 3 Months in Cape Town: Successful applicants will be living together under one roof, sharing, learning, working, and growing their businesses in the most friendly and collaborative way possible

  2. Free Office Space: Enjoy a dynamic and collaborative workspace in the heart of Cape Town for three months. Immerse yourself in an environment that fosters creativity, productivity, and innovation.

  3. Personalized Mentorship: Gain exclusive access to a network of experienced mentors and advisors who will guide you through the intricacies of scaling your business. Benefit from their wealth of knowledge and industry insights.

  4. Tailored Growth Programs: Our comprehensive in-person programs are crafted to address the unique challenges and opportunities your business faces. From strategic planning to market expansion, we've got you covered.

  5. Community and Networking: Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders. ScaleX provides a platform for you to build valuable relationships, share experiences, and tap into a supportive entrepreneurship community.

  6. Investor Access: ScaleX opens the door to a vast network of potential investors. Showcase your business to those who understand the value of innovation and are ready to contribute to your growth.

  7. Demo Day: Cap off your ScaleX experience with a grand Demo Day! Showcase your business in front of a curated audience of investors, providing a unique opportunity to secure additional funding and partnerships.

What The ScaleX Accelerator Offers?

Requirements for The ScaleX Accelerator?

To qualify for the ScaleX Startup Accelerator Program, applicants must:


  1. Operational Startup: Applicants should not be in the ideation phase; rather, they must have a fully operational and existing startup.

  2. Tech or Digital Focus: We are particularly interested in tech startups or digital ventures that can operate effectively in a virtual environment.

  3. Digital Operations: Your startup should be equipped to operate digitally, allowing the majority of the team to work virtually. While we cover the cost for the founder to be physically present in Cape Town, the rest of the team should be willing to participate remotely.

  4. Willingness to Relocate to Cape Town: Successful applicants must commit to relocating to Cape Town for the three-month accelerator program. We'll only cover accommodation costs for the founder and they'll need to pay for their food and living expenses. 

  5. Post-Revenue or MVP: Your startup should either be post-revenue, demonstrating a successful monetization strategy, or have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) showcasing the potential for revenue generation.

  6. Demo Day Readiness: Applicants should be prepared to showcase their business on Demo Day, a pivotal event where startups pitch in front of potential investors and partners.

  7. And here's the final touch: Our commitment doesn't end there! We're dedicated to supporting you in securing funding. Through our partnership with Akha Ventures, we'll assist you in raising funds, with a commission ranging from 2% to 10% based on the amount successfully raised.
