I’m In Accelerator for Black Women


I’M IN Accelerator seeks to launch African owned, high growth technology startups into the South African technology sector by providing opportunities to technically apt entrepreneurs with limited access to resources.

I’M IN partners with entrepreneurs who have commercially viable application technologies by facilitating access to seed funding of (up to) R1,5m through early stage equity, in conjunction with business development support and one-on-one mentorship from industry specialists.

The accelerator allows startups to test their assumptions and validate their products in the market, commercialising startups that show real market potential.


Our main accelerator program offers 10 month acceleration to black women-owned technology startups.

Our mission is to produce a pipeline of investment ready startups for follow-on capital, commercial opportunities, and market growth for the ecosystem.
