Startup Accelerator

The Mountain Hub Acceleration programs are invite-only, go-to-market programs supporting mid-to-late stage startups that have raised institutional funding, achieved product-market fit, and are ready to scale.
These programs offer startups unique supports by assigning Partner Development Managers (PDMs) with deep acceleration knowledge and startup or business development experiences. Get support for your business in three key areas: product development, go-to-market, and co-sell.

SME Growth Lab

A Digital Accelerator Program designed to empower African SMEs with Digital Skills, Knowledge, Mentorship, and Community events to drive economic growth in Africa.
Africa is currently positioned for growth, but for that to happen, businesses need to be empowered to contribute tremendously to each country’s GDP.
Through SME Growth Lab, business owners who are from emerging African countries can get equal access to business training, support, mentorships, and community events.

Corporate Venture Studio

Our venture studio model quickly discovers and validates new opportunities, then provides you with optionality on how to move forward. We believe in a portfolio approach, helping you build internally, partner with startups and spin-out new ventures. We work closely with our clients to identify the right choices to unlock growth, and when we build a startup through our Venture Studio, you – our corporate partners – are one of our secret weapons.

Our Approach: Companies large and small around the world must accelerate innovation to not only survive but thrive. In these turbulent times, speed beats scale. No matter the size, all companies must act decisively and move quickly.

1. Discovery; Within 60 to 90 days, we identify several venture concepts addressing specific, meaningful problems faced by identifiable customer segments in a sizable market where you have a right to win and time-to-market is a premium.

2. Venture Validation; We validate at least one venture concept within the studio, providing clarity about its potential solutions, product roadmap, and go-to-market strategy. We provide the business case and recommend how to advance the venture concept.

3. Co-Creation / Build Internally / Partner / Buy; Whether you choose to build your new venture internally, co-create with Mountain Hub in our studio, or partner with a startup through a Pilot Program Accelerator, we work with you to find the right path — and invest right alongside you.

Corporate Pilot Accelerator

Startups can solve the problems that corporations can’t solve internally, if they are given the necessary opportunity and cooperation. Our Corporate Pilot Accelerators are tailor-made to test startup solutions quickly through pilot validation. We work with you to design the program, source and select startups, and run the accelerator, providing mentorship and support to the startups and engaging your teams and business units along the way.

Results Through Pilots
Our Accelerator team works with you to frame business challenges, design your pilot program accelerator, build the pilot cohort, run the pilots and evaluate outcomes. From start to finish our Pilot Program Accelerators typically last less than a year, validating new startups with optionality to scale the relationships, invest or acquire.
