We believe the Future is African and Female.

We know women are vibrant and vital architects of society.

We know women are the best levers for change in our world. 

We also know female entrepreneurs need to be championed. 

More women are pursuing entrepreneurship in Africa per capita than anywhere else in the world. For this reason, Spark* is conducting a continent-wide search to bring together an unrivalled group of 15 African Female Founders for its YHER AcceleratorFounders running high-impact ventures aimed at improving the lives and women and girls.

Attend a week-long Accelerator program in Johannesburg in November 2017 and access the opportunity to win up to $50,000 AUD in prize funding. Apply here: https://www.yher.org/
