Growth Engineers

Grindstone is a structured entrepreneurship development programme that assists high-growth innovation-driven companies to get the fundamental building blocks in place to scale quickly and become sustainable and fundable.

Our Grindstone programme is now open for applications where we will select the top twenty innovative scaleups to provide them with knowledge, networks and funding readiness through growth measurement, gap analysis and deep interventions designed to build a foundation for growth. We transfer skills, create relevant business networks and enable these companies to take advantage of market access opportunities. We are running our programme for both Cape Town and Johannesburg cohorts this year, and will select the best ten applicants per city.
