BIC Africa Acceleration Programme for Women Entrepreneurs

Empowering women entrepreneurs. Accelerating impact.


The third edition of the BIC Africa Acceleration Programme for Woman Entrepreneurs will support 15 women entrepreneurs from Angola, Comoros, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Somalia and 5 others from other African countries willing to scale their businesses while contributing to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The program will run from May to September 2023, and it will focus on supporting women business owners across all sectors and business types through a combination of online training modules, coaching sessions, individual exercises and a mentoring program with women experts from Europe and Africa with relevant experience in supporting innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups.

About the Acceleration Program

We are looking for women entrepreneurs addressing one or more Sustainable Development Goals and who are willing to explore growing their innovative solutions with the support of the BIC Africa Acceleration Programme.

Twenty selected entrepreneurs will benefit from a full online training course (6 modules); will participate in dedicated group coaching sessions to deepen some of the topics addressed during the training; will be matched with European and African incubation experts that will accompany their growth trajectory through remote mentoring sessions; and will be exposed to the alumnae network of BIC Africa Women Acceleration program.
