The Y-HER Accelerator Program is a powerful opportunity for passionate female impact entrepreneurs in Africa who are at the early stages of building businesses and organisations that exist to change the lives of women and girls in Africa.
Who is this meant for:
Female-Led Ventures: Applicants must have at least one female co-founder who will participate in the program.
Local: Applicants intimately understand the problem that you are trying to solve.
Support Women and Girls: The venture must exist to improve the lives of women and girls who are held back by poverty.
In the Early Stages: Applicants will have already launched a venture or at least run a pilot and have some early traction or proof of concept. You will typically have less than 100 customers and have been in operation less than two years.
A week-long intensive entrepreneurship program designed to fast track your early stage venture. There will be provision for training and mentorship while also connecting you to an inspiring group of fellow female entrepreneurs working hard to create a better world for women and girls.
A total of $50,000 in prize funding is available for the winners of the peer review and audience votes.
