wCap – Women Capital

In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the critical role that women play in driving economic growth and development. Despite this, women entrepreneurs continue to face significant barriers when it comes to accessing finance and investment opportunities for their businesses. Recognizing the need to address this gender disparity, wCap in partnership with the Time+Tide Foundation embarked on a mission to create a programme specifically tailored to the needs of women-led businesses. 

The Women in Business Investor Readiness Programme was born out of a desire to empower women entrepreneurs and provide them with the tools and resources they need to succeed in the business world. Studies have shown that women-led businesses are often overlooked by investors, leading to a significant disparity in funding between male and female entrepreneurs. This innovative programme is designed to bridge the gender gap in access to finance by providing female entrepreneurs with the tools and resources they need to succeed in the competitive world of business.  It is a transformative initiative aimed at empowering women entrepreneurs and equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to attract investment for their businesses. 

The programme will consist of a series of workshops, mentorship sessions, and networking opportunities tailored specifically to the needs of women-led businesses. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts, connect with potential investors, and develop a comprehensive investor readiness plan for their businesses. Through the Women in Business Investor Readiness Programme, we aim to level the playing field and create a more inclusive and equitable business environment where women have an equal opportunity to thrive. 

We are excited to welcome our cohort 4 of participants and look forward to supporting them on their journey to investment readiness and business success. Join us in celebrating the launch of this programme and stay tuned for updates on our participants’ progress and achievements. Together, we can empower women entrepreneurs and build a more prosperous and inclusive future for all.
