Womenpreneur Pitch-A-Ton

Launched in 2019, the Womenpreneur Pitch-a-ton program is the first women-in-business support initiative of its kind in the industry offered by Access Bank’s W Initiative. The program in its maiden edition provided a free mini-MBA certification to 50 women entrepreneurs in Nigeria as well as financial grants worth N9Million to the top 3 applicants. This it did in conjunction with the International Finance Corporation (IFC, a member of the World Bank Group). Subsequently, the program was extended to 10 other African countries where Access Bank’s W initiative has its presence. The program has since awarded the Mini-MBA training to 645 women entrepreneurs and provided over $175,000 in grants across Africa. This year hosts the 6th season of the Womenpreneur Pitch-a-ton in Nigeria and seeks to provide mini-MBA certification to another 120 women entrepreneurs as well as grants worth over N17.5 million Naira.
