As an introduction, we launched in June 2020, The Future is Female Mentorship Program; a PR and communications mentorship exclusively dedicated to African tech female founders. Since launch, we are very proud to have discovered that this is the first PR and comms program ever launched exclusively for African women in tech. I am delighted to share the results of The Future is Female Mentorship Program.
We had 139 applications from 18 different African countries from across the continent. Initially, our goal was to select 10 mentees for the inaugural program, but the volume and quality of the applications were so good that we have extended the program to 12 African female-founded startups instead of 10.
One of the finalists is a Ghana-based female tech entrepreneur-Divaloper and it would be fantastic to work with you in giving your readers an update on who was selected from across Africa. Other finalists come from Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya. Attached is the press release with the list of female-founded startups plus some graphics including the logo’s of the finalists.
African women in tech are underserved of the underserved, and we are so excited as an agency to pour our resources into this complimentary program dedicated to them and look forward to your support in publishing this story.
