Are you passionate about entrepreneurship in Kenya, South Africa or Uganda? Do you want to support women-led business to flourish?

We believe that the current investment landscape isn’t set up for women to succeed in business, so we’re connecting funders with game-changing female entrepreneurs from across Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa in a brand new program to bridge the investment gap. 

This program is designed to:

Equip women entrepreneurs with the knowledge and awareness to navigate the world of investment 

Help them to assess what type of investment, if any, their business needs

Provide tailored support and a network of experts to help women-led businesses access capital confidently

We are looking for mentors to support the #WomenBuildingAfrica.
