AWIEF Victoria’s Secret Growth Accelerator for Women Entrepreneurs 2024

AWIEF is partnering with Victoria’s Secret to provide twenty women founders or leaders of innovative, growth-stage businesses in Nigeria an opportunity to be part of a seven-month, high-impact investment preparation programme.

While the Accelerator program targets multi-sector business, priority will be given to those that are technology-based in the following sectors: Education, creative industry, agriculture, health, financial services, logistics, renewable energy and climate smart solutions.

So, if you are a woman with a business owned 51% by women, or the business is women-led at C-Suite or equivalent, or the business produces services that specifically or disproportionately benefit women, then you are eligible.

Note that the business needs to be based in and operate in Nigeria, be in the post-revenue stage, be operational for three years or more, be highly innovative and scalable, and be looking for investment to expand.
