This unique and innovative platform aims at facilitating contact between major and junior entrepreneurs for enhanced visibility of their activities and possible lucrative partnership.

Working on Stairs

ACC does not only promote enterprises but also helps develop them. It is no more a secret that most African enterprises shut down few years after their creation, a situation that can be attributed to a lack of adequate mentoring and preparation.

ACC Incubator

In view of this situation, ACC has introduced ACC Incubator, a platform suitable for the growth of young African startups. This space offers the young entrepreneur with a wide variety of experienced entrepreneurs from Africa and the Diaspora to provide mentoring assistance. ACC also puts in place or organizes several trainings and forums for knowledge sharing and skill acquisition for incubated enterprises.
