What is a FastTrack?

Startupbootcamp FastTracks are informal events that we host all over the world to meet the most suitable early-stage 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 mentors, 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.

What’s happening?

On the 22nd of May, the Startupbootcamp Cape Town program welcomes you to Cape Town, South Africa 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. You will have the opportunity to receive mentor feedback and learn more about the Cape Town based Startupbootcamp accelerator program.

If you’re a startup, we encourage you to apply now. With only 10 spots available for the day, the earlier you apply the higher your chances are of attending the event.
