GHV Accelerator, whose 5 startups have made the final cut for Innotrek this year, funds and mentors startups between the incubation and the venture capital stages. The accelerator provides startups access to a controlled environment, necessary resources and vital connections in addition to sustainability funding (up to USD 100,000), so they are able to scale up and achieve healthy business metrics.
