August 20, 2021

Harare, August 20, 2021: Apply for the 2021 cohort of the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE).

A White House initiative, AWE supports women entrepreneurs with the goal of building a better future for families and communities around the world.

This year, the 2021 cohort focuses on women active in the Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs) between 20 – 40 years of age. We encourage women providing ancillary services in the CCIs, such as but not limited to lawyers, gallery owners, talent managers, booking agents, insurance, venue owners, content designers, trade facilitation and other service providers that could support the broader creative community.

Women participating in AWE have access to DreamBuilder, an online course on women’s entrepreneurship. Participants will engage in facilitated sessions on how to manage their business, attend guest presentations by seasoned creative entrepreneurs and practitioners in Zimbabwe and the USA, network with like-minded creative entrepreneurs and have the opportunity to competitively access grant opportunities.

To submit your application for the AWE Zimbabwe 2021 program, please follow the link:  www.awezimbabwe.com. The application deadline is August 31, 2021.
