The British government has given support to green tech female entrepreneurs from Nigeria.
It is doing this through a programme tagged: “Future Females Business School Greentech Programme.”
Under the UK-Nigeria Tech Hub, Britain is supporting female Nigerian entrepreneurs who are building greentech businesses and are looking to impact their respective communities/industries.
The greentech programme is intended to help female-driven green businesses overcome any self-limiting beliefs, and give them the tools and support needed to successfully start and grow their business.
The UK-Nigeria Tech Hub says this programme will not only grow green businesses, but will help Nigeria build a resolute green finance base for climate-friendly projects.
The deadline for application is May 7, 2021.
“We want to hear all about your business – to ensure this programme is the right path for you. We can only take a limited number of entrepreneurs through this programme, to ensure you get the hands on support that will help you succeed. So we want to be sure we are working with the DOERS – the people who are going to take ACTION throughout the programme.”UK-Nigeria Tech Hub
