The yher 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 their communities, with a preference for those who are improving the lives of women and girls in Africa.
If you are successful in your application, you will be training alongside some exceptional entrepreneurs. If you put forward an honest and authentic application and are selected, you will do great. If you haven't, you may quickly find yourself out of your depth!
That said, remember that we are looking for early stage ventures - 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 or the power goes out!
ARE YOU A FEMALE FOUNDER THAT-
- has already launched a business that is making a difference in their community or in the lives of the women and girls (by improving education, health, homes or creating good jobs)?
- wants to scale their venture to impact many more people?
- is on a clear path to revenue?
