Link Address To Apply For African Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative Cohort 5

The African Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative is an innovative 12-month, leadership and business management capacity building program that accepts 200 female entrepreneurs annually.

AWEC uses applied and collaborative learning experiences to create immediate business impact and cultivate a pan-African cooperative of entrepreneurs, experts, and allies. The program’s blended-learning model - in which most activities take place digitally - releases AWEC from the traditional confines of in-person training programs and enables us to impact entrepreneurs across the continent and diaspora.


Who Should Apply

Women who are:

Founders of businesses that have been in operation for at least two years in any industry and have at least two employees (either full time or part time) OR women who have a strong business concept and plan to launch their business within the next year

  • Founders of social enterprises are encouraged to apply; founders of NGOs or nonprofit organizations are no longer eligible for the 12-month program
  • Citizens of any African country, currently living on the continent or in the diaspora
  • Comfortable with remote teamwork and collaboration, especially using digital tools
  • Proficient in verbal and written English
  • Able to regularly (at least weekly) access the Internet through a computer or tablet


AWEC admissions do not discriminate based on race, religion, age, disability, marital status, education, business revenue, or geographic location.


What We Look For

AWEC seeks to build diverse cohorts in which Fellows share some consistent characteristics:

  • Vision and resiliency 
  • Business clarity and market knowledge
  • Commitment to building their businesses
  • Motivation to be part of a yearlong learning experience


How You Will Benefit

  • Form connections with a diverse network of African women entrepreneurs
  • Establish a relationship with a senior business mentor
