The Gender Equity Track
So far in 2020, only 3% of financial investments have been allocated to female-led startups in Africa (Briter Bridges). Seedstars believe it’s time to change that narrative.
Seedstars, the Swiss investment holding group, is dedicated to empowering more female-led startups by launching “The Gender Equity Project”.
As a woman entrepreneur, you can benefit from this project by getting access to entrepreneurial training, a global network of peers, mentors, and experts, as well as potentially receive investment for your startup with the Seedstars World Competition, happening fully online no matter where you are.
