Female tech entrepreneurs in the Western Cape Applications are encouraged to apply for Rise Scalarator.

The programme by Absa’s innovation hub, Rise, aims to support South African black female founders who have developed a post – minimum viable product (MVP), tech solution to boost and scale their startup, whilst acquiring a range of new competencies.

Rise Scalerator will run from June to November 2018 and will kick-off with a 12-week bootcamp, culminating in a Funding Pitch to be held at Rise, which will assist them in securing investment opportunities with the broader network.

The five selected female founders will get access to support from a business coach, access to advisory boards to help with accountability and better decision-making by focusing on corporate governance and compliance and the opportunity to attend monthly networking events with tech experts and investors.

Applications close 9 May 2018 and the programme will run from the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town from June – November. To apply click here.
