AWIEF extends application deadline to May - ITREALMS

Following the ongoing lockdown associated with developments and challenges around COVID-19, the Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) has extended the deadline for applications for the LeadTech Incubation Programme to 20th May 2020, reports ITREALMS.

ITREALMS gathered is run in partnership with Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) Morocco.

AWIEF founder and CEO, Irene Ochem said they fully appreciate the uncertainty, disruptions to business and need for flexibility during these difficult times, and hope that this will relieve some pressure for those who would like to submit an application.

"This global pandemic serves to highlight the importance of innovations in health, education, agriculture, finance and environment in Africa, and LeadTech Incubation offers a unique opportunity for women tech and digital startups to test, develop and grow their innovative solutions in a time calling for creative and collaborative solutions to global problems”.

She also said that selected participants will gain access to "tailored training and capacity-building, 3-week residency at UM6P in Morocco, Space and infrastructure (Living Labs, Digital Lab, Data Center, Prototyping Labs), World-class mentors and experts to work with successful applicants, 5-months virtual incubation, Venture showcase at AWIEF2020 (2 – 3 December, Johannesburg, South Africa) and Funding opportunities."

The LeadTech Incubation, she further said, is open to female digital startup leaders who are 18 years of age or older and residing in any African country.

"You have an innovative, scalable offer that integrates digital technologies into the process. You are passionate, committed, and have the capacity to engage fully in the programme," she said.
