ygap is an international organisation that creates positive change by making entrepreneurship more inclusive. At a micro level, ygap looks to increase the capacity and agency of entrepreneurs to run successful businesses that are making a positive impact.
The ygap Kenya program offers the necessary support and resources, to enable entrepreneurs create, launch, scale and sustain businesses that are making an impact - thereby unlocking their full potential and uplifting their communities in the process.
The program will consist of a five-day live-in accelerator followed by 12 months of support tailored for early stage enterprises and start-ups which includes strategy, branding, legal, mentorship, catalytic grants among others.
The program requires that you are available for the duration of the live-in accelerator, and your application will not be considered if you are not available for the 5 days starting 13th March 2022
The application process is highly competitive, and only the qualifying applicants will proceed to the interview stage.
Please note that the program has a fee of KES 35,000 payable in two installments upon your selection to participate in the program. This amount will go towards subsidising the meals and accommodation for the five days.
