Digital Business Academy 2016

The Academy empowers women to solve key requirements for business success: Education, Networks, Mentoring, Access to finance, Access to markets.

Most importantly the academy retools them with the business and tech skills needed to stay competitive in the rapidly evolving modern workplace.

50% of SMES in Africa are mostly owned by women. However just a little percent are able to leverage Technology to expand their business ventures.

Most women don’t have access to the tools and know-how of Technology and have overtime lost interest in its relevance to what they do.

Digital is now embedded in all forms of business/career choice and hence the need to empower women with digital tools.

To build a relevant business that will positively impact Africa and the world, women need to learn how to position their businesses for the future, taking advantage of modern tools that will give a new direction to the African economy.
