The yher Pacific Islands Program is a powerful opportunity for passionate female impact entrepreneurs who are at the early stages of building businesses that exist to improve the lives of people living in poverty across the Pacific Islands region.
Successful applicants will receive world-class training, personalised business support and will have access to a peer network of exceptional, like-minded women entrepreneurs.
What we’re looking for from you is an honest, authentic application. That said, we are looking for early stage ventures, so we don't expect you to have perfect answers to all the questions here just yet!
We recommend preparing your answers in a separate document and then pasting them into this application form so you don't lose your work if your computer crashes, you need to work on it offline or the power goes out!
ARE YOU A FEMALE FOUNDER THAT:
Is living in the Pacific Islands?
Is running a business in the Pacific Islands?
Has a business that has been actively tested, developed or launched and is currently active?
Has a business that is selling a tested product/service?
Is making money (or will be making money soon)?
Has a business that is making a difference in your community?
Wants to grow your business to impact more people?
The yher Pacific Islands program is a 6 month program that begins with an intensive live-in accelerator week, in Fiji. The rest of the program will consist of remote support, which you can access and partake in from home.
At this time, we are re-assessing the impact of this evolving pandemic on the timing of our program. Please be assured that the program will go ahead, with our schedule adjusted to accommodate travel restrictions and ensure participants feel safe, comfortable and empowered to travel and attend.
Given the current situation and the unknowns around timing, we're keeping our application process open until we can confirm our program dates. Please do apply, and we will contact you once we have dates booked in.
The application must be completed by the applicant themselves. While you may ask for guidance and support from others, the form must reflect your ideas and your passion, expressed in your own words. We will conduct a phone/SKYPE interview with you if you are shortlisted.
