Applications open for female-focused green energy accelerator programme.

The Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) has opened applications for the Women in Green Energy Ventures Accelerator Programme, which will offer female-run green startups access to support, mentorship and capital.

The programme stems from the Enterprise Development for Women-Owned Ventures in Green Energy initiative launched last year by AWIEF in partnership with the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF), and will be implemented in Malawi and Nigeria.
