About the Opportunity

Women entrepreneurship for Africa is an EU, OACPS and BMZ funded program, that seeks to provide 120 female entrepreneurs from the TEF alumni network, with access to €10.000 in grant funding that will be paired with 3 months of technical support through a virtual acceleration program.

The program aims to improve the business capacity of women-led enterprises to increase their chances of raising follow-on funding from private sector investors.

This program will be an additional 3 months.
