Hi there,

IT IS HERE! This week is the last working week of the year for us!  We've had such an incredible and busy year, so we're excited to be on taking a short break for the next two weeks. For this week's update, we will keep it short and sweet so we can get back to wrapping Christmas presents and setting up our 'out-of-office' emails.

Applications are still being accepted for the SC Women in Tech incubator programme! We would love to surpass our applications for cohort 1 (80 applications) this cohort - so if you have started your application, don't forget to complete and submit it over the Christmas break. If you haven't yet, apply by visiting the website https://scwomenintech.co.zm/. Should you have any questions about the programme, do not hesitate to send us an email using the link provided here.

We have one Boost with Facebook session this week and it's a session you won't want to miss - see below for details!

Thank you for your readership.
Happy Holidays!

NB: The BongoHive Team will be on industrial break from Friday 24th November 2021 to Monday 10th January 2022. The Hive Coworking Space will still be open during this period.
