Programme Acceleration

Expand your project and improve your leadership

SINGA Acceleration is an entrepreneurship coaching program for newcomers (refugees or those with a residence permit) and local people, promoting innovation resulting and/or related to migration. This step allows entrepreneurs already in business to raise funds, scale up and improve their leadership.

  • Personal follow-up sessions with the programme leader to evaluate the advancement or your project
  • The development or your professional network to help your project to evolve
  • Investor Day : a support day with financement opportunities
  • Opportunities to grow your visibility through the SINGA France network and different events
  • Access to a co-working space

In light of health measures and restrictions, the programme will take place either in person (Paris) or online (on Zoom).
