I&P Acceleration in Sahel is deployed around three complementary components, aimed to accelerate the development of existing, but often informal, small businesses and to improve the success of new entrepreneurial projects:
- Addressing the financing needs of companies during their incubation or acceleration phase. The seed funding is between 2 million FCFA (€3,000) and 40 millon FCFA (€60 000)
- Strengthening the capacities of the companies and of the investment teams through or collective training and expert missions carried out by national and/or international experts
-⠀Supporting the ecosystem
- Strengthening entrepreneurship business structures: these structures are essential to helping to combat the feeling of loneliness that young entrepreneurs may experience and to facilitate their preparation for fundraising and/or investment.
