Entrepreneurs Program

Winners of the Cocoa Seed Competition will be eligible for the Entrepreneurs Program, as will any applicant that has a well-developed cocoa-related business plan. Details on how to apply will be announced soon.

Successful candidates will receive mentoring from CIG Co-Founders for one year, with the possibility of extension. Mentoring will include guidance on market analysis; networking opportunities with potential investors and partners; dedicated sessions for strengthening the business model and business plan; feedback on branding and marketing; and assistance with planning pitches to investors. They will also receive access to CIG programming.
