Ongoza Entrepreneurs Application Form
Ongoza is recruiting promising young entrepreneurs looking to scale their existing businesses.

3. Access to low-cost debt financing after 3 months, subject to additional screening
4. Seminars on practical business problems (i.e. financial management, how to close a deal, etc.)

Overall business support will be need-based, with Ongoza’s core competencies covering a variety of topics. Some example topics include:

The accelerator will begin with an 8-week course designed to provide the business expertise necessary for growth. Outstanding entrepreneurs will then be selected to progress to the second phase of the accelerator: 10 months of 1-on-1 business advisory support, access to low-cost debt financing, skills workshops, market linkages and networking opportunities with peers, investors, etc.

Accepted entrepreneurs will be asked to pay a heavily subsidized fee of 5.000 ksh at the beginning of each month.

Please note that entrepreneurs will be asked to present a copy of their monthly financial revenues and costs at that time.
