E4Impact Acceleration Program

Our Program

The E4Impact Acceleration Program is a dynamic and innovative program designed to support and empower growth-stage and scale-up enterprises in Kenya. Our mission is to nurture the growth and success of Kenyan impact entrepreneurs by providing them with the necessary resources, training, and equity funding to build their enterprises into thriving and impactful businesses.

The journey includes: Having a roadmap that shows Application, Pre – Selection, Interviews, Due Diligence, Final Selection, Cohort Launch, and Access to Accelerator Services.

1. Application

The recruitment process is officially launched and all interested candidates are invited to submit their applications through our online platform/ application.

2. Pre-Selection

From the applications received, an initial pre-selection is undertaken as the first screening towards determining enterprises who will form the cohort.

3. Interviews

The candidates who qualify after the first screening are invited for an interview to get a better understanding of their enterprises against the laid out criteria.

4. Due Diligence

A thorough background check is done, for the enterprises that qualify after the interviews, as part of further screening.

5. Final Selection

After the due diligence, the final determination of the enterprises forming the cohort is made and communication is passed on to them; including a schedule of the acceleration program.

To ensure that the accelerator meets the needs of the entrepreneurs, these key elements are part of the program:
