The British Council Ghana and Social Enterprise Ghana have joined hands to launch the Social Enterprise Women Business Accelerator programme.
The two-month-long business accelerator for women-led social enterprises will focus on businesses that have a clear positive social and or environmental mission.
A total of 50 women-led social enterprises are targeted to be supported to become more investor ready, get connected with investor partners and assisted to access funding.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women entrepreneurs has been severe and support programs like the accelerator programme can help build the resilience of these businesses.
The accelerator program will support the women to fill in the gaps through interactive learning workshops, targeted coaching and expert support.
Participants will be taken through sessions on improving their business model, proper bookkeeping and financial management systems, growth strategy and marketing including customer acquisition strategy. Investor partners including banks, angel networks and SME growth financiers will also assess the businesses for investment and provide feedback and support.
The expected outcome of the programme is for investor partners; ShEquity, ABSA Bank, ACCESS Bank, Grofin, Built, Lady Angels Network and other investors to interact with and invest in the businesses of the social enterprises.
