Accelerator Africa

Oceanhub Africa call for applications closes next week

OceanHub Africa is launching the first cohort of its six-month acceleration program to support six of South-Africa’s most promising impact for profit startups focused on preserving and restoring the health of the ocean.

The deadline is March 16th and the acceleration will start on April 20th.
