WeTech seed fund for women in technology in Africa

WeTech Seed Fund for women in AfricaWeTech is launching a Seed Fund in Africa that will provide small grants to support individuals or civil society organizations to play a role in increasing the access for women and girls to computer science-related training, jobs and leadership roles. While new and existing initiatives will be considered, preference will be given to the expansion of current projects.

Grants of up to $20,000
Seed Fund grant amounts will range from $2,000 – $20,000. Grant applications will be reviewed by a panel of experts knowledgeable of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) content areas or applicant’s countries.

Based on the application review, the Seed Fund team may propose modifications to the budget, requested amount and/or scope of the project that the grantee may accept if they so choose. Winners of the WeTech Seed Grants will be required to report quarterly on their progress as well as participate in, and contribute to, a virtual community of fellow grantees.

    I like your initiative – and I’m also a an African woman from Caoe Town, South Africa. I’d like to find out if you focus in SA at all or you focus in other areas in Africa.

    I am drafting my business plan for a tech-basd business model within communications – online + mobile.

    I would like to request help with idea-generation, modelling, building / coding, business strategy / funding for R&D and seeding capital etc. I’d like to learn and work within a project – I am flexible to take a course anywhere in Africa, should an opportunity be available.

    Would love to hear from you soon.
