Applications are open for the next batch of 500 Startups companies, and home cleaning platform SweepSouth, which has just returned from its four-month programme in San Francisco, believes that more African entrepreneurs should be taking up the chance.
Aisha Pandor, CEO and co-founder of SweepSouth says, “We are going to be working with Silicon Cape to support other local startups apply to this programme. While the $125k investment was obviously very helpful and we are putting much of that towards expanding our team, it was the exposure to the 500 Startups ecosystem that was the true value of the experience.”
As an on-demand service, SweepSouth was matched with companies and mentors with years of experience in the space. “It’s impossible to put a value on what sharing experiences with others in different markets, with different business strategies and plans, has on how we as a team think about our business,” says Pandor.
