Project: Resilient Startups Project 2021
About the Resilient Startups Project
Available statistics indicate that, most startups fail within their first two years of launching. This indicates that, most of the current models for startup development are not resilient to the many challenges of entrepreneurship – thus, the birth of this project.
The Resilient Startups Project is an initiative by The Telescope Training And Mentorship Academy (TMA), as part of its mission to ensure that the youth are able start their business ventures in a right and sustainable way.
The project seeks to locally facilitate and develop an integrated entrepreneurship support programme (skills building, seed funding, incubation, acceleration), that leverages on the mentors, coaches and training programmes of The Telescope Training And Mentorship Academy (TMA).
The objective is to build investment ready ventures (more than 70% of them being women-led), and linking them to potential funders, as well as being able to link young people to employment opportunities.
