Stiftelsen Ester (Ester Foundation) in partnership with MTI Investment’s advisory arm will during the period 2022 – 2023 run an accelerator program for female immigrant entrepreneurs looking to scale up their ventures. MTI is providing support in regards to designing and implementing the accelerator program through its advisory unit. The program is a unique opportunity for ten to twelve female entrepreneurs to participate in a tailor-made venture-building program. Each participant will receive access to a team of mentors that have been chosen based on the specific needs of that particular company. More information on the program and the application form is available at https://stiftelsenester.se
MTI Investment’s CEO Pontus Engström says: “Ester Foundation and MTI are committed to supporting entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups so that they can successfully scale up their ventures. Through our vast experience in venture building we know that many entrepreneurs possess impressive domain expertise, but often lack knowledge in regards to e.g. marketing, law, and finance that are key to successfully scaling their businesses. The accelerator program that we have co-developed with Ester Foundation will alleviate the aforementioned challenges by providing personalized actionable advice and support. It is our hope and intention to discover talented East African diaspora entrepreneurs, who are building ventures in East Africa. This initiative also pairs well with the recently announced collaboration with Techbridge in Nairobi.”
Ester Foundation has secured funding for the accelerator program and entered a partnership with MTI. MTI’s advisory arm will offer acceleration and consulting services, leveraging the extensive know-how among the management team in running accelerator programs and providing growth coaching to entrepreneurs.
