A knowledge brief of South Africa’s incubator and accelerator landscape
The South African Business Development Services Provider (BDSP) space is active and growing. In an effort to deepen understanding of the incubator and accelerator landscape in South Africa, ANDE hosted a series of breakfast roundtables in Johannesburg and Cape Town in 2017 and 2018. Discussions focused on gathering qualitative information regarding key activities and services, programme structure and funding sources, as well as challenges and opportunities faced by BDSPs. This document presents an overview of the key findings from the roundtables and provides recommendations for further research.
