UK-South Africa Tech Hub Partners Future Females Business School to Support Founders

The UK-South Africa Tech Hub in partnership with the Future Females Business School, will support 30 female entrepreneurs to grow their GreenTech businesses.

As the world looks to manage its way out of the COVID-crisis, which has affected millions of lives and decimated economies, it is important to remember the world is still tackling an even greater crisis – climate change.

Regardless, there is also an opportunity to drive clean, resilient and inclusive recoveries – shaping the low carbon economy of the future that will create new jobs, attract green investment and protecting the global environment for future generations.

Future Females is therefore excited to announce that the Future Females Business School, in partnership with UK-South Africa Tech Hub has launched a new programme focusing on supporting 30 South African female founders through the Future Females Business School GreenTech programme.

Seeing the positive impact that the Future Females Business School, together with the UK-South Africa Tech Hub, has had on the 5 cohorts they have graduated to date, it is important to build on this and increase the scope and support female entrepreneurs who are working to care of and protect our planet.

This led to the introduction of the Future Females Business School GreenTech programme.

UK-South Africa Tech Hub Director, Shirley Gilbey: “The Future Females Business School GreenTech Programme is a three-month virtual programme, equipping local female entrepreneurs with the entrepreneurial skills and best practices needed to start and grow successful tech businesses.

“These businesses not only generate wealth for the founders, but also create a positive impact in communities and environments.”

British High Commissioner to South Africa, Nigel Casey said: “A Just Transition is not just about Government policy and major infrastructure and energy projects.

“It is about inclusion and the creativity and drive of businesses to shape the economy and create the jobs of the future. I am therefore delighted that, through the UK-South Africa Tech Hub and the Future Females Business School, we are addressing both by supporting women entrepreneurs.”

Applications are open until 25 January 2021, with only 30 spots available in the three-month pilot programme commencing on the 8th of February 2021. Apply here now.
