What is Grind2Grow?
Grind2Grow is our iAccelerate incubator program that is a proven, high-quality and a progressive learning experience.
This program offers a tailored education program that gives entrepreneurs deep knowledge across a diversity of skills to accelerate and sustain business growth, built around the key knowledge areas required to rapidly build and scale a successful startup.
What will Grind2Grow teach you?
Our Grind2Grow program will teach our startups and companies to really think about the impact of their business, supplementing those ‘hard’ skills in business development with a focus on sustainability, ethics, leadership, working together and building a social conscience into your business model.
You’ll learn the foundational business skills you need to go from initial idea to sustainable business, but it’s much more than that.
Through a blend of facilitator led workshops, self-paced online learning, individual mentoring, active learning and peer support.
Activate draws upon the Lean Startup method and more. It is a principled approach to new product development, customer discovery and continuous improvement to ensure a solid foundation to launch a sustainable business.
Our workshops cover Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Lean 1, 2, 3, Startup Innovation, Brand and Pitch Life.

“If you have an innovative idea but don’t quite have the experience and capability to bring it to fruition, iAccelerate is the ideal place to turbo-charge that idea into reality.”
A good mentor isn’t about having you emulate exactly what they’ve done; it’s about giving you the confidence and guidance to navigate the rookie pitfalls and shape your own fast-tracked path to success. Some companies part of our mentor network listed below.
Our network extends far beyond the mentors that have joined us in this program and we will introduce our members to those that can provide value and benefit from an introduction.
