Aspiring Entrepreneurs Program 2021

Aspiring Entrepreneurs Program is based off the idea that the foundation of a building is a major part of the building that supports its weight and should be built with care because it determines how strong and firm the building will stand.

Aspiring Entrepreneurs Program

The Aspiring Entrepreneurs Programme (AEP) was birthed to equip aspiring women entrepreneurs with the Competence, Confidence and Connections to build a strong foundation for their businesses. Participants receive practical knowledge and guidance on how to move from idea to startup using a framework that will improve the long-term sustainability and profitability of their businesses.

The 2021 AEP Program will be in two Phases;

Phase 1: This will run from March-May 2021 and will empower selected participants with comprehensive training adapted from a curriculum designed by an International Organisation and deployed successfully in over 100 countries. Sessions will be facilitated by experienced African entrepreneurs and faculty members of leading Business Schools. Mentors will  work with participants helping them to navigate the business landscape with fewer challenges

Phase 2: This will run from June – August 2021 and will further develop the competencies of the most promising 50 entrepreneurs from phase 1 with practical one-on-one business coaching from experienced entrepreneurs to help them launch and grow their businesses successfully.
