Global call launched for social ventures empowering women: apply before 24 July
12 July, 2017
Applications are open for the F>>LANE acceleration programme. There are 5 spaces for high-potential, digital impact ventures focusing on female empowerment. Selected entrepreneurs are invited to work, learn and live in Berlin during the 6-week course starting October 2017. Deadline to apply: 24 July.
Participants receive tailored mentoring to rapidly increase their impact. This includes an assessment of the business, individual coaching and experiences to get your venture investment-ready, and a personal mentor experienced with building a business.
The F>>LANE opportunity is open to participants from across the world who focus on empowering women and girls by using technology. It is the second time the programme is being run; a group of entrepreneurs was successfully trained in March.
The programme is run by the Vodafone Institute for Society and Communications in collaboration with the Impact Hub Berlin and the Social Entrepreneurship Akademie. These partners aim to identify innovative technology start-ups that focus on women, provide a business solution to a social problem and have the potential to make a wide impact.
