Startup Acceleration Form
Kumasi Hive Acceleration Program offers a challenging and comprehensive 3-month curriculum of company-building sessions designed to help entrepreneurs plan and start building every aspect of their business, from the core idea to the product and revenue model. Kumasi Hive provides seed funding for startups. Seed funding is the earliest stage of venture funding. It pays your expenses while you’re getting started. Some companies may need no more than seed funding. Others will go through several rounds. There is no right answer; how much funding you need depends on the kind of company you start.

At Kumasi Hive, our goal is to get you through the first phase. This usually means: get you to the point where you’ve built something impressive enough to raise money on a larger scale. Then we can introduce you to later stage investors—or occasionally even acquirers.
