We partner with talented Entrepreneurs to test, build and scale new businesses with strong products from the ground up.


Startups that enter the ACCO Acceleration Programme move to Cape Town for 12 months to accelerate & scale, through dedicated mentorship, training and access to professional services.


We invest in a number of promising startups every year. Those are Seed and Early stage investments into companies that operate from South Africa, to help them gain traction.

We believe in South African Entrepreneurs

We invest in a select few startups every year. We provide seed capital and accelerate those startups. We also enroll talented entrepreneurs-in-residence to exploit new venture opportunities as they arise.

Our job is done when a startup achieves meaningful revenue milestones, is ready to scale, and gets a series A funding to finance its growth.

Elon Musk once twitted about life as an Entrepreneur "The reality is great highs, terrible lows and unrelenting stress. Don't think people want to hear about the last two." At ACCOventure, we want to hear about the last two. We support Entrepreneurs. We make sure they get to experience the Great Highs.
