We have great news! We’ve been accepted into the 2020 class for the Techstars and Western Union Accelerator program.

Techstars and Western Union accelerator is a 3-month, mentor-driven program designed to help startups build and shape the future of how money moves, and we are proud to be a part of this year’s cohort.

This edition of the program has the theme ‘Access’ and it focuses on how access to better financial tools and services unlocks opportunities and creates a more equitable and inclusive financial world.

The Techstars theme resonates well with our mission at Rise — to connect Africans to the best wealth-creating opportunities around the world through scalable tech.

Speaking on our acceptance into the Techstars program, Rise founder and CEO, Eleanya Eke said, “Being a part of the Techstars/Western Union accelerator is perfect for us because we get a chance to work with world-class mentors and leverage the experience of an established global player to really boost our ability to connect users to the best investments anywhere in the world. This gives us the platform and resources to build a world-class solution for our users.”
