Core Program Overview
AWEC is a high-touch, fast-paced blended learning model that empowers African women entrepreneurs with the knowledge and network needed to build resilient and scalable businesses.
We use technology and collaborative learning techniques to transform the lives of 200 entrepreneurs each year. The 12-month learning experience, which runs from April to March every year, provides cohort members with online and offline experiences, individual and team-based work, opportunities to give and receive peer feedback, and individualized business mentoring. Lessons and assignments are designed to be practical and applicable both to well-established business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.
While there are minimal costs to participate in AWEC, we require commitment, hard work and active engagement from cohort members. Those who are willing to give and receive knowledge as an involved member of this Cooperative will gain the most from this year-long experience.
