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.
AWEaP has a strategic relationship with ALX
(https://www.alx.app/) where the Entrepreneurial Accelerator for women entrepreneurs in energy and power will be delivered. ALX is a community connecting entrepreneurial leaders and innovative problem solvers in a Pan-African network unlike anything that exists today. ALX is unlocking the potential of Africa’s greatest resource: it’s people.
We encourage women entrepreneurs to express their interest to participate by emailing us at: email@example.com
Our annual target is 100 women entrepreneurs from 22 African Markets as illustrated below.
