  • Are you seeking a supportive sisterhood on what is often a solitary entrepreneurial journey?
  • Would you relish the opportunity to grow your network, expand your skills, strengthen your brand, and be mentored by a senior business professional?
  • Are you willing to dedicate 4-6 hours a week for the next 12 months to become a more strategic and savvy business owner?

If any of those statements spoke to you, visit to learn more about the African Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative (AWEC).



AWEC is a one-of-a-kind, high-touch, 12-month business and management development learning program. AWEC focuses on applied learning and collaborative experiences to ensure immediate business impact and the creation of a pan-African network of entrepreneurs, experts, and allies. The programme is open to women who were born in and do business in Africa; members of the diaspora are welcome to apply, but their business or NGO must have an impact on the continent. AWEC is delivered in English and proficiency is required. There is no fee to participate in AWEC, but the programme is fast-paced, rigorous and demands your hard work and commitment.

Applications will be accepted from 12:01 am UTC, 5 December to 11:59 pm UTC, 18 December. For regular updates as the application approaches, follow us on Twitter or Instagram @weareAWEC.
