Building on the success of 2020 where over 500 female entrepreneurs from across the country were trained, and 20 top founders participated in a Demo Day at the 2020 Summit, Fem-In-Tech aims to reach and support more female entrepreneurs in various aspects of their business.
In addition to this, a number of founders managed to raise significant Venture Capital to build scalable businesses.

“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world,” Hilary Clinton.

Fem-In-Tech Season 2 looks to empower more women entrepreneurs with the skills to build successful, investable and scalable businesses. In addition, the programme will help develop networks and partnerships to enable the growth of their businesses and increase their opportunities in the entrepreneurial space
