Spring is a pioneering business accelerator that provides support for enterprises focused on improving the lives of adolescent girls in East Africa. This project is sponsored by DFID, USAID and NIKE Foundation. According to the popular knowledge, when you empower a woman, you empower a nation. Spring is taking a step further by realising that adolescent girls are the most powerful force for change on the planet, when you empower an adolescent girl, it has a chain reaction by affecting the whole economy. This is a very laudable step that Spring has taken and I hope the impact will be huge.
The accelerator includes 9 months of intensive mentorship, prototyping alongside world-class product and business designers, and networking with leading local and global advisers and investors. SPRING launches in 2015 in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda.
Applications close 16 March 2015.
