Our beginnings —
The FAST Founder Series launched in summer of 2022 after the completion of the inaugural FAST Accelerator program, where 12 African startups were chosen from 800+ applicants. The FAST Accelerator program provides opportunities for 1:1 mentorship, high-caliber business training, access to funding, marketing, and talent as well as investment opportunities.
The collaboration of Flapmax and Microsoft has gifted an opportunity to showcase the next generation of businesses targeting the United Nation's 17 Sustainability Development Goals. Season One: Accelerate offers an inside look into each of the 12 FAST Founders companies, Africa's digital ecosystem, and what it's like to work under FAST.
