She Leads Africa (SLA) has set up a 3 month acceleration program seeking to identify, support and fund Nigeria’s brightest female entrepreneurs with the most promising ventures. Dubbed the She Leads Africa Accelerator, this program has been made possible through partnership between SLA, GT Banks and the Work in Progress! Alliance (Oxfam & VC4Africa)
The program is an extension of the She Leads Africa Entrepreneur Showcase, which made history 2 years ago as the first ever Pan-African pitch competition for women led businesses.
Speaking about the new program, She Leads Africa co-founder Afua Osei said “the pitch competition was a great way to find and fund women led businesses but we weren’t able to work as closely with the entrepreneurs as we would have liked and help them hit key milestones.

The 3 month SLA Accelerator will consist of 1 week residencies where entrepreneurs will receive training from the SLA team and their network of business leaders and experts. During these residencies, entrepreneurs will be focused on growth, marketing and distribution.
