Benefits

Access to education

7,000 women entrepreneurs will benefit from a digital programme on entrepreneurship and social and personal skills. The sessions, led by WIA’s knowledge partner and Africa’s first and largest network of private higher education institutions, Honoris United Universities, will provide women with a comprehensive approach to developing creative ideas, as well as knowledge on leadership and management skills.

With the accelerator programme, 70 women entrepreneurs from 3 countries will benefit from coaching and an in-depth support programme.

Access to finance
  • 600 women entrepreneurs will receive grants to support their business development and improve their impact on communities. 
  • At the end of the programme, one laureate per country will receive a prize of $10,000 to support her project.
Network access and visibility

The programme will give participants a lifetime access to the WIA network, and thus, to potential collaborators throughout Africa.
WIA will create an Advisory Council for each country, composed of local personalities who will accompany the programme. Therefore, women entrepreneurs will be able to be in contact with these prominent personalities. 
They will be highlighted on WIA’s social media throughout the programme.
