Happy New Week!

In partnership with Facebook, we will start conducting sessions for Boost with Facebook this Thursday. These are a series of free webinars that will provide you with the tools to boost your online presence. Whether you are at the beginner, intermediate or advanced level with your digital marketing skills, Boost with Facebook has a learning path that can accommodate you. We have two sessions running this week: ‘Build Your Presence Online’ and ‘Discover Tools to Drive Your Business (Part 1 & 2)’. Register for a session here and check out our Facebook page to meet our trainers who will be facilitating the sessions.

Last week Tuesday, the top 5 winners of the SC Women in Tech programme were featured on the Business Review programme on ZNBC TV1. It was inspiring to hear the businesses share their journey during the programme and their eagerness to implement tech solutions to grow their businesses. We are looking forward to seeing the businesses succeed and we are happy to be part of this process by offering post-incubation support.

Nkwazi Magazine listed us as one of the top 6 Zambian YouTube channels to watch in their July article and we are delighted to have been featured! We invite you to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we share videos on our various entrepreneurship programmes, as well as a range of webinars on various topics across industries.
Have a great week, and stay safe.
