We invest in young women and youth as builders of transformative solutions to the most pressing problems of today and tomorrow (Climate Change, Food Security, Health & Education Disparities). We do this through the provision of practical tools and resources necessary to drive a paradigm shift geared towards the creation of sustainable and desired solutions. We achieve this through
Design Thinking & Adaptive Leadership Training: Our model is designed as 3 months accelerated MBA-style training program that empowers women and youth to develop an idea, build a model, and test it using design thinking methodology and principles of adaptive leadership.
Tailored Mentorship: Key to the success of our scholars’ social ventures, they receive a life-long opportunity of mentorship and tailored support from business experts as a ticket to sustain their venture operations and grow their business expertise.
Lean Start-Up Financing; On commencement, our scholars receive a revolving lean start-up loan to implement their idea. These are usually group-based or individual payable within a period of 3 months after the business takeoff.
