ImpactHER is a nonprofit organization that aims to empower the African female entrepreneur by providing her with inspiration, grants, training, and other resources to help her realise full economic potential.
The organisation engages with African female entrepreneurs to determine and address the challenges they encounter in running their business
Thereafter, they train them on how to build scalable best-in-class businesses and to be investor-ready, and then position the female entrepreneurs to be market leaders.
ImpactHER’s business boost grant is to ensure that female-owned businesses have equal chances to compete in the entrepreneurial world and scale their business.
With the advent of COVID-19, a lot of female businesses were forced to shut down due to lack of funds, and technical know-how.
ImpactHER seeks to bridge this gap by not only providing funds for women-owned businesses but giving them access to business support and bridging the technical gap, to ensure the funds are put into good use and produce great results in record time.
If you are a female African entrepreneur, and you are ready to follow through with the process, fill the form through the application link below.
