APPLY: 2020 Future Females Business School Tech Programme for Entrepreneurs

UK-Nigeria Africa Tech Hub partners with Future Females Business School to support 50 Nigerian female entrepreneurs to grow their tech-based businesses.

Applications are officially OPEN for the Future Females Business School, powered by UK-Nigeria Tech Hub – a programme that will support 50 Nigerian female founders to increase the capacity of their enterprises to grow, scale, and become more sustainable.

The UK-Nigeria Tech Hub has been established as part of the UK’s Digital Access Programme (DAP), a UK Government Prosperity Fund initiative. The UK-Nigeria Tech Hub aims to develop a stronger Nigerian digital ecosystem through the development of skills, entrepreneurship and business partnerships.

The Future Females Business School Tech Programme is a three-month virtual accelerator programme, equipping local female entrepreneurs with the entrepreneurial skills and best practices needed to start and grow successful and sustainable businesses, that utilise technology to not only generate wealth for themselves, but to have a positive impact in their community, and environment.

Future Females has previously partnered with the UK-South Africa Tech Hub, supporting nearly 200 female entrepreneurs to date, with participants seeing 88% increase in digital skills development, 95% uplift in confidence, and on average a 168% revenue increase in their businesses.

“We are excited to partner with the UK-Nigeria Tech Hub to extend this programme to the early-stage female entrepreneurs in Nigeria, to support our mission of empowering African female entrepreneurs to build world-class businesses, and stand proud and take up space on global digital & physical stages.” states Lauren Dallas, Co-Founder of Future Females.


“This innovative programme aligns with our mission at the UK- Nigeria Tech Hub to support gender inclusive economic growth with a specific focus on empowering women with the skills and connections to overcome the existing digital gender gap. We are excited to work with the Future Females Team to bring it to Nigeria to support 50 female entrepreneurs” – Honey Ogundeyi, Country Director at the UK Nigeria Tech Hub
