Acceleration

The Acceleration program follows the 12-month incubation period. During acceleration, entrepreneurs will be given a chance to enhance their business skills. This will be done through a series of workshops, online courses and lectures. This will allow our entrepreneurs to start their own businesses in the Film & Media space. The acceleration program will be less hands on, this will give entrepreneurs a chance to explore different ideas they may have conceptualized during the incubation program. During the acceleration program entrepreneurs will have access to mentors to help them develop their idea. These mentors will consist of people who came to give masterclasses, and other relevant people in the film industry. The acceleration program will also help entrepreneurs apply for other programs abroad, such as the Disney Accelerator and the La Selva Accelerator.
