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 for 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 provided Mini-MBA to over 300 women entrepreneurs across Africa. 

The 2024 Womenpreneur Pitch-a-ton programme for Nigeria will officially kick off on Monday, June 24th – August 9th, 2024 and will offer financial grants, an exclusive certified capacity building program and business coaching aimed at empowering women entrepreneurs.
