A group of graduates who completed the first Femtech entrepreneurship programme.

The first Femmies graduation from the Femtech experiential learning programme took place on 12 March. Fifteen Namibian women entrepreneurs went through an intensive six month programme, giving them time to reflect on their businesses in a more structured way.
Facilitated discussion groups that encouraged peer learning taught them the real value their businesses offer and to whom to position their business for sustainable growth. This has included the use of tools to introduce innovative products, services and processes, learning how to position themselves in a competitive market, how to price their products and services appropriately and how to address challenges when moving from a micro to small and beyond business. The Femtech training programme commenced with the first intake on 1 October 2013 and concluded on 12 March this year. The second intake will start on 17 March with the programme running from May to September of this year.

Femtech Namibia is a collaboration between Femtech (Pty) Ltd South Africa and the Bokamoso Entrepreneurial Centre in Windhoek. Femtech aims to increase the number and success rate of women entrepreneurs by encouraging them to adopt innovative practices and technology in their businesses.
