New accelerator programme Tech By Her opens call to female-led tech ventures


MEST — the Pan-African training programme, seed fund, incubator and hub for tech entrepreneurs in Africa — together with Make-IT in Africa run by GIZ, the German agency for international co-operation, are calling on female-lend startups to apply for a new accelerator programme.

The three-month programme, dubbed Tech By Her is focused on supporting burgeoning female-led tech ventures in Africa to become globally competitive and sustainable brands.

Additionally, it will equip them with tools and resources to enable female-led startups to navigate their chosen fields, scale and sustain their businesses in a competitive environment.

Female-led startups from Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria have until 13 March to apply for Tech By Her

In its first edition, the accelerator is accepting applications from female founders of early-stage tech companies in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria.

The programme will involve mentoring and coaching of female founders and building an alumni network of successful Tech By Her Accelerator participants who will go on to become ambassadors for other upcoming founders.

Applications close on 13 March.
