The U.S. Diplomatic Mission to South Africa and Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF) are once again partnering to implement the 2022 Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) South Africa program.
In this fourth edition of the program, 110 participants will be selected to join the AWE 2022 cohort and participate in activities based in Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, and Pretoria. This will bring the total number of South African women entrepreneurs who have received training, mentorship, and support to more than 400 since 2019.
AWE 2022 will be implemented as a hybrid program from June to September 2022 in partnership with the U.S. Diplomatic Mission to South Africa’s network of American Spaces.
AWE is an initiative of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and supports the U.S. National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality. AWE drives business growth and prosperity for women and communities in more than 80 countries worldwide. It is centered around DreamBuilder, an online training platform for women’s entrepreneurship developed by Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management in partnership with the global copper mining company Freeport-McMoRan.
