Sinapis is an accelerator program for early stage to mid-stage entrepreneurs that provides intensive training at the advanced MBA level in partnership with Acton School of Business in Austin, TX as well as top notch consulting and mentorship support and the opportunity to compete for seed capital. Sinapis is also committed to building Kingdom businesses around the world, so 25% of our curriculum is focused on Kingdom business principles that help our entrepreneurs relate their faith to their business.
Our training program includes 16 weeks of curriculum that covers customers, financials, human resources, operations and Kingdom Business. It is designed specifically for early stage entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses.
For classes, they receive participant manuals that give them each week’s in class exercises and information to help them follow along with the class discussions. We also provide the trainers a trainer’s manual with everything they need to lead the classes.
Classes are interactive in nature with many case studies, debates, live simulation games, problem sets and videos.
Upon completing the program, members of each graduating class are invited to submit their business proposals to Sinapis. After a thorough selection process, entrepreneurs with the most innovative and scalable ideas proceed to Sinapis’ annual Business Plan Competition, a live pitching event that brings together business owners, investors and other individuals in the entrepreneur ecosystem. The winner of the competition receives $10,000 in grant-based seed capital, and proceeds to join Sinapis’ Fast Track Fellows Program.
Outstanding finalists in the Business Plan Competition advance into an intensive 6-month program known as the Fast Track Fellows Program. Fast Track Fellows benefit from key resources such as customized mentorship from successful business owners, professional advising from experts in law, branding, accounting etc., and one-on-one support from widely experienced consultants. Fellows in the program also gain access to additional funds in the form of early stage and growth stage investment capital.
For the past six years, Sinapis has found some of the most innovative and scalable business start-ups in Kenya to go through our Sinapis training program. This year, we have made our training available to more entrepreneurs by expanding within Kenya to two new cities! Sinapis now offers programs in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu. We have also expanded globally to bring world-class entrepreneurship training, paired with study of kingdom business principles to Ghana and Brazil!

Sinapis couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. It helped me organize my business, plan, create systems and efficient processes, understand and translate financial results, and set up dashboards to measure critical things in the business.
