Supporting Black & African female tech founders
Our commitment to giving back led to the launch of The Future is Female PR Mentorship Program in 2020 for African & Black women founders.
We launched this program to provide the underserved market of African female tech founders of early-stage startups with the PR and communications insights, knowledge, and skills needed to gain visibility and grow their business. The program is aimed at African women based on the continent or in the diaspora and are launching or growing a tech business for African markets or serving Africans in the diaspora.
The first edition of the program received 139 applications from 18 countries across Africa and selected 12 women. It features a group master class and three one-hour sessions for each tech founder customized for nuances of their startup and sector.
