Present - Get Feedback - Connect

What is a FastTrack?

Startupbootcamp FastTracks are informal events that we host all over the world to meet the most suitable companies interested in joining our program. For each FastTrack, we invite the top 10 startups who apply to receive instant feedback from a panel of industry experts, network with our investment team and find out more about the program. Teams that attend a FastTrack are 20% more likely to be invited to the final selection days.

On the 30th of April,  the Startupbootcamp AfriTech program in partnership with BNP Paribas welcomes you to Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire for a FastTrack day as part of its international tour to support the area’s best talents. The 10 most promising startups selected from the applications will be invited to present their innovative ideas to the Startupbootcamp team and fellow entrepreneurs.
