Overview of Organisation

Seed Engine is a business accelerator. 3 times a year, Seed engine invests in the top 10 business ideas and entrepreneurs and brings them in to join their stable of ventures. When they exit the 13-week program, the entrepreneurs transform into leaders and their ideas become Investable Businesses. During the programme, they are given coaching, mentorship and seed capital to get their kick-ass ventures off the ground. Seed Engine is a combination of a mini MBA, reality TV Show, business bootcamp and a whole lot of magic that nobody has seen before.
