SASIE to empower African women tech entrepreneurs with finance

The Sougth After School of Innovation & Entrepreneurship (SASIE) is set to empower African women entrepreneurs and startups in the tech sector with finance to kick-start and scale their businesses.

SASIE is inviting aspiring tech women to register for its Idea to Venture programme – a new initiative to support women’s businesses in tech. Online registration has been opened for interested entrepreneurs to register and attend the empowerment programme.

“We welcome African women to join this Idea to Venture program, which can give their tech startups and ideas the needed push-start,” Jennifer Dumle Daniel, Executive Director at SASIE said in a statement while inviting women to register for the Idea to Venture Program by SASIE.

“This program is aimed at aspiring African women entrepreneurs, especially those who have an idea for a technology-based business and would like to develop it further,” she added.

The programme has been scheduled to hold on June 29th, 2024 virtually for an hour. The Idea to Venture program includes six weeks of learning and any woman living in Africa, above the age of 18 is eligible to apply. This learning or training is worth $4,000 but free for the participants of the Idea to Venture program.

Also, the participants can pitch their ideas to a panel of experts that could lead to a coveted spot in SASIE’s business incubator for another six weeks.

This cohort begins in July and will be held online with an in-person meet-up at the end of the program. The highly qualified faculty at SASIE makes this jump-start of a business idea more effective. Interested participants can visit www.sasie.org for registration.
