MERCY CORPS - LEEP Business Accelerator Program

The objective of this program is to create 600 new micro-enterprises as well as strengthen 15 private sector innovators with financial and business advisory support through an external business incubator accelerator program to create youth employment or mitigate labor market failures. Mercy Corps will partner with a Business Development Firm to design and implement a business incubator and accelerator program to train, support and scale high performing Liberian businesses. These businesses will be selected through a rigorous and competitive process and 600 youth will be selected for the incubator program while 15 small to medium sized firms will receive expansion grants.
