The African Development Bank is to host women in technology this week on the current models of enterprise support and venture capital funding to tech enterprises in Africa.
The event, which takes place this October 11, 2018 in Accra, Ghana Labadi Beach Hotel, Accra, Ghana is aimed at understanding if investors are sympathetic to the unique needs and challenges that female tech entrepreneurs face.
Specifically, the session will seek to answer the following questions:
• What are the specific needs of female tech entrepreneurs?
• How do female tech entrepreneurs support each other?
• What are the gaps in the existing models of enterprise support?
• What technical assistance do female tech entrepreneurs need in order to access venture capital funding?
The ultimate goal of this session is to describe a technical assistance program targeting female tech entrepreneurs that will enable them to access and receive venture capital financing to grow their businesses.
