C Moore Media, a US-Public Relations firm, has launched The Future is Female Mentorship Program for African female founders.
The Future is Female Mentorship Program is to provide the underserved market of African female founders of early-stage start-ups with the PR and communications insights, knowledge, and skills needed to gain more visibility and grow their business.
Ten African female founders will be selected to participate in the inaugural The Future is Female Mentorship Program, and become members of the Class of 2020.
The program will take place virtually, and C Moore Media is inviting mentees to participate in a group master class hosted on Zoom, followed by three online one hour, one-on-one sessions.
Special consideration will be given to start-ups that focus on health, education, finance, agriculture, and sustainability. In addition, start-ups that provide solutions and/or address the needs of African women and girls will also receive special consideration.
