We will host an information session for the SC Women in Tech Incubator programme this Tuesday, 26th January 2021 at 2 PM CAT.

The info session will be held on Zoom and will be streamed live on our Facebook page, register here. Applications for the SC Women in Tech Incubator programme close this Sunday, January 31 2021.

Last week Friday, we wrapped up the sprint week for the Thrive Investor Readiness programme which we are running in partnership with Village Capital and Prospero Zambia. The 9 participating ventures were taken through a series of workshops where they learnt how to scale their businesses, get investment ready and they also connected with mentors, investors and advisors. The programme will run for the next 3 months and it will be concluded by an Investor Summit which will take place in March.
Have a great week, and stay safe.
