Creating a cohort of women entrepreneurs in the energy sector enables partnerships to forge, consortiums to be built across countries, ensuring that women are better positioned to participate in cross-border power/ energy projects.

Women entrepreneurs in Power and Energy also have deep insights into their respective markets.

The Entrepreneurial Accelerator brings diverse experiences and contexts to a forum where peers can explore pragmatic solutions for their respective countries.

It provides a dynamic platform for building lifelong networks for continued information sharing and collaboration.

“Women have the appetite, resilience and fortitude to participate as entrepreneurs in the African Energy Sector”
