The IB Accelerator Online
IBA is a virtual incubation centre, connecting start-ups, investors and business coaches.
The platform has been built by VC4Africa, the largest online community of entrepreneurs and investors in the world (> 1,200 venture profiles registered, > USD $2 million raised by entrepreneurs in funding). Entrepreneurs will have access to free online tools, mentorship opportunities and private deal rooms. Investor Pro Account users get tailor-made update feeds on the type of deals they are looking for, and connect directly with the entrepreneurs.
So what is the difference between VC4Africa and IBA online?
- IB Accelerator online is not confined to Africa, but strives to connect inclusive business entrepreneurs, mentors and impacts funds world- wide.
