The yher Accelerator Program is a powerful opportunity for passionate female impact entrepreneurs in South Asia 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 people in South Asia.
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 your community or in the lives of the women and girls (by improving education, health, homes or creating good jobs)?
- wants to scale your venture to impact many more people?
- is on a clear path to revenue?
To be determined. The program has been post-poned from 2019 and will take place some time in 2020.
We are accepting rolling applications for the rest of 2019 and will update the deadline as soon as program dates have been confirmed.
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.
You will be responsible for organising your visa to Bangladesh. We will provide supporting documentation however please ensure you understand what is required for your country and whether you will be eligible.
