The Entrepreneurship in Africa (EWEA) initiative is currently accepting applications for its mentorship, and capacity-building workshop series from women-led small to medium enterprises (WSMEs) as well as community enablers and entrepreneurship support organizations across Africa.

The AFAWA (Affirmative Finance Action for Women in Africa) Initiative, Seedstars, and GrowthAfrica have come together to create the Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in Africa (EWEA) program. In order to combat gender inequality and promote inclusive economic empowerment for African women, the Project’s primary goal is to be completed. To be more specific, the Project’s goals are to expand access to mentorship, finance, and visibility for Women-Led Small and Medium Enterprises (WSMES), as well as to increase the capacity and sustainability of enablers supporting Women-Led Small and Medium Enterprises (WSMEs).


About the Scholarship Sponsor:

Seedstars was established in 2012 by Pierre-Alain, Michael, and Adrien, three Swiss business owners who met through their shared interest in starting businesses from scratch and entrepreneurship. After some time had passed, Alisée de Tonnac became a member of the team, and the two of them went on to launch the largest pitching competition together. Their goal was to find the most promising early-stage high-growth ventures in order to construct the largest entrepreneurial community possible in emerging and frontier markets. Later on, Benjamin Benaim was brought onto the team to help drive forward the operations of Seedstars that are related to company building.
