Female entrepreneurs invited to apply for Africa Innovation Fellowship


Female entrepreneurs have been invited to apply for the Africa Innovation Fellowship, a nine-month leadership and business development opportunity.

Powered by WomEng and the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation, the fellowship is aimed at early-stage startups and aims to develop the talent pipeline for the Africa Prize.

It kicks off with an in-person fellowship training week in Kampala, Uganda at the start of June, which will be focused on idea and business incubation, leadership development, networking and getting pitch-ready. This will be followed by nine months of personalised virtual support.

The overall winner will secure an all-expenses paid trip to London to attend the Global Grand Challenges Summit in September. Applications close on April 1.
