The book Chapter ‘Digital Entrepreneurship in Africa: Case Studies of Nigeria and South Sudan’, based on the Female Entrepreneurs Support Program (FESP), has been published by Palmgrove, in the book titled Digital Service Delivery in Africa.
FESP is a collaborative initiative by AfriLabs member hubs and AfriLabs Capacity Building Program (ACBP) award winners: ‘TechQuest STEM Academy’ (Nigeria) and ‘Junub Open Space’ (South Sudan).
The book chapter written by the collaborating hubs aligns with one of the strategic pillars of Afrilabs on Research, Evidence and Learning. The book chapter provides an evidence base for entrepreneurs in 2 African countries and provides a pathway for insights into Africa.
FESP funded by ACBP and AFD through the Digital Africa Seed fund, directly impacted over 700 female entrepreneurs from Nigeria and South Sudan and engaged over 90 experienced mentors across 13 countries.
The program provided capacity building training, business support coaching and mentorship for females that intended to go into business, nascent female-led start-ups and entrepreneurs. It offered support and build capacities in terms of knowledge, skills and networks, to access markets and promote innovations through networking, mentorship and our business clinic. The initiative inspired, educated, empowered and supported female entrepreneurs.
