Wamda X is a grant-based programme for founders with the aim to safe-route the often financially grueling and solitary path to entrepreneurship.
Our goal is to co-found businesses with Fellows by providing them with grants and opening up the Wamda network of mentors to help ease the process of starting and scaling a business. Wamda X will be the initial financiers for founders and offers access to Wamda Capital, which can continue financing these businesses as they grow.
|Stage||Stage 1: Ideation, Stage 2: Research & Development and Stage 3: Proof of Concept|
|Region||Middle East and North Africa|
|Focus Areas||All Sectors|
|Management Team||Successful businesses are often started by mature founders who have several years of work experience but do not conform to the status quo.|
That’s why we are looking for mature professionals who have a knack for solving market failures and those who embody leadership and efficient problem-solving qualities.
The qualities that make a great entrepreneur are often present before they even start a business. The best businesses are founder-run, so Wamda X is looking to partner with these founders from the early days of starting up.
