AWIEF & SANBio Empowering Female Bio-Entrepreneurs!

As Africa Women Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF), a pan-African women’s economic empowerment organization, we foster women’s economic inclusion, advancement and empowerment through entrepreneurship support and development. 

AWIEF in partnership with NEPAD Southern Africa Network for Biosciences (NEPAD SANBio) is implementing FemBioBiz II Accelerator Programme. FemBioBiz is a programme that aims to promote opportunities for women in the biotechnology and biosciences sector with impact on health and nutrition, while developing their leadership, technological and business skills. It also aims to support deal-making and commercialization in the biosciences arena and create a peer-to-peer network among local female bio-entrepreneurs.

AWIEF  and SANBio are looking for ambitious South African female entrepreneurs and leaders in bioscience-based businesses who would like to grow their business through an accelerator programme and gain regional exposure and access to international markets.
