Why HER?

“A $300 billion gap in financing exists for formal, women-owned small businesses, and more than 70 percent of women-owned small and medium enterprises have inadequate or no access to financial services.” ― Ifc.org
  • ImpactHER is an award-winning not-for-profit organization awarded by the African Union as the Best Women SME (small and medium sized enterprises) Support Organization in Africa; we empower African female entrepreneurs by bridging the gender business financing gap so as to help them realize their full economic potential
  • Our ultimate goal is to utilize our institutional investing experience to prepare best-in-class African female market leaders.
  • We do this by training African female entrepreneurs on how to build scalable businesses and access institutional investors.
  • We believe that empowering African female entrepreneurs is critical to building the African economy and spurring economic growth.
