StArfrica Exist Idea Accelerator Program 2024

 Deadline: 2nd of January, 2024.

Finding business ideas from Ghanaian university students and recent graduates and assisting them in applying for the EXIST Business Start-up Grant for Germany is the goal of the StArfrica Exist Idea Accelerator.
In order to submit their application for the EXIST Business Start-up Grant at the conclusion of the accelerator program, participants will collaborate with the StArfrica team and seasoned trainers on the grant application materials over the course of the 6-week program, which requires approximately 15 hours of work per week.


  • Bachelors, Masters, or PhD students in their last year or graduates from a higher learning institution (university, etc.) in Ghana —graduation no longer ago than 5 years
  • Must be physically present in Ghana for the duration of the accelerator program.
  • Must be interested and willing to move to Germany for at least a year if the business idea is accepted for the EXIST business start-up grant.
  • Must prove excellent command of English.
  • Must have a computer and a stable internet connection.
  • Must have a highly global, scientific and innovative business idea that fits the German market (e.g., an idea related to IT, health, sciences etc.) and be available to move and work in Germany for one year if your application for the EXIST Business Start-up Grant is successful.
  • Please be aware that an idea that only focuses on the Ghanaian market cannot be considered.
  • Also, please be aware that only applications by a team of three people will be accepted. This does not necessarily mean that all three of you have to apply for this program, but there will need to be a team of three people in the end when handing in the final application documents.
  • Teams with a majority of females are strongly encouraged to apply!

Training Date

  • The training will take place both in Accra and online between 15th January and 22nd February 2024.
