Introduced in 2017, the WIA 54 programme promotes women entrepreneurship in Africa. Each year, it endows 54 African women entrepreneurs from 54 African countries with a comprehensive support package consisting of training, communication, and networking.
In 2021, WIA rolls out its 2030 plan and multiplies by 10 the number of laureates!
This year, before appointing the official 54 laureates, the jury will make an initial selection of 10 finalists per country. Thus, 540 candidates will benefit from training and coaching. This newly introduced initiative is intending to support more than 10,000 women entrepreneurs and indirectly contribute to the creation of 100,000 jobs by 2030.
54 country laureates and 9 sectoral revelations will be particularly distinguished!
