The Explorer program provides initial funding in the range of 10.000 MAD to 250.000 MAD for each team in addition to matching them with globally and locally experienced mentors in a vast array of technologies, businesses and disciplines to help usher the ventures through their various stages including business plans, customer discovery, early product definition, technology development, intellectual property and legal structure. The Explorer program is a community of diverse innovators and entrepreneurs that are eager to impact the Moroccan, African and/or Global entrepreneurship ecosystem and advance business, technology, product and social endeavors in those systems. The Explorer program believes in the philosophy of learning by doing, need-based learning and open access. The culmination of cohorts that last 4-5 months each is an Explorer showcase where groups can put their businesses on display and an opportunity to pitch to a funding board.
