The 100 IDEAS Accelerator Program

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
