New Accelerator Programme for Green Startups LaunchedFetola, an enterprise development firm, is launching Groundswell, a new initiative to accelerate the success of products and services in the water, sustainability and resource efficiency sectors.

The practical programme is supported by seed funding from J.P. Morgan, builds entrepreneurial skills and helps big corporates and small business owners do better business together.

Thirty South African entrepreneurs will benefit from an intensive 18-month growth programme of practical business skills training, mentorship, supply chain inclusion, investment readiness preparation, and access to markets. Enviropreneurs, waterpreneurs, and greentrepreneurs are invited to apply. Established enterprises with growth potential and start-ups that have already invested in their initial concept are welcome.

Groundswell encourages collaboration between entrepreneurs and citizens, technical advisors and Government stakeholders, and corporates needing recognised suppliers of sustainable solutions. Their mission is to support SMEs providing services with an environmental imperative.

If you’re a small business owner who is keen to scale your water-related business, please email or call 086 111 1690 toll-free.

Applications will be accepted from 14 February until 9 March.
