The teams went through our custom accelerator program which is a 3-month immersive deep dive aimed at accelerating the life cycle of selected solutions, by compressing years’ worth of learning into a period of three months. The 10 solutions underwent a series of programs which are tailor-made to get the selected solutions up and running for DEMO Day in the shortest time possible.
The sessions focused on
- Situational Analysis in relation to new developments (opportunities/ potential threats) following field visit to Bidi Bidi
- Strategy - Overview of value proposition and rationale for focus areas
- Business Operating Model - Review of business operating models within context
- Funding alternatives for your solution
- Preparations and review of Pitch Decks and Proposals
- Interaction with Mentors, implementing partners and Innovation teams from Mercy Corps & Dan Church Aid
