      San Francisco Techies: I want to move to Africa & create a startup

      Want to move to Africa and create something awesome? We are 88mph, a web/mobile accelerator based in Nairobi, and we're looking for you. Partnered with some of the best like Google, we invest in 10-12 startups at a time and take them through our 3-month accelerator programs in Cape Town & Nairobi.

      What does joining our accelerator mean? Investment, access to a bult-in team of pro's with uber skillz from coding to biz dev, a network of investors to call on for follow-on funding and marketing muscle. Most recently partnered with Samsung, our startups have the opportunity to scale at speed lightening. Join 88mph and your products could end up on 10 million + phones across Africa.

      Monday, July 29 in San Francisco you'll get a chance to do just that - come and apply your startup to our accelerator in Nairobi. 

      We’ll start at 4:30 pm at Google's offices and here’s how it’ll go down:

      • Mix, mingle & grab beers
      • 88mph Program Manager Sylvia Brune will open the evening  - talk 88mph + how the 3 month accelerator works
      • Q&A from the crowd on the program and application
      • Open mic, startups give their 2 min pitch, 88mph gives quick feedback + startups have a chance to pitch why they’ll take Africa by storm

      People that apply should:

      • Want an investment (we invest $15-100k USD per startup)
      • Be ready to move to Nairobi for at least 3 months in August and participate in the accelerator program if they get offered an investment.
      Location: Google - 345 Spear Street. Snacks, wine and beer will be served. Please RSVP to to claim your spot - space is limited. Read more here. 

      Good luck and see you Monday!
