The initiative, which is aimed at African women on the continent or in the diaspora who are starting or expanding a tech business for African markets or servicing Africans in the diaspora, picked 12 startups for its first round last year and is currently accepting submissions for round two.
“We had such an incredible response to the first edition with a fantastic cohort of mentees that went through the programme, we decided to make The Future is Female Mentorship Programme an ongoing annual initiative”.
Female founders will learn the essentials of PR and communications for early-stage digital firms, as well as how to establish a communications plan and incorporate narrative into business interactions with numerous stakeholders, during the mentorship programme. The programme will also provide mentees with insights tailored to their business and industry’s specific needs. This edition will be selecting 25 female startup founders.
Applications are open until 11:59 pm (WAT) on Monday, the 5th of July. Click here to apply.
