Changing Lives Through Skills Training, Mentorship, and Peer Networks.

AWEC will enroll 200 women entrepreneurs for the current program year.

CGE developed the African Women Entrepreneurship Cooperative (AWEC) in response to those challenges and to feedback from African alumni of its online learning courses who requested more in-depth training on critical management topics, longer program engagement and mentorship, and a sustained peer network.

AWEC one-of-a-kind, 12-month training program that builds a pan-African community of women entrepreneurs and business owners, empowering them with strategy, leadership and business management skills needed for growth and economic advancement.


Upon successful completion of the 12-month program, participants will:

  • Gain access to a network of like-minded African entrepreneurs as well as a group of world-class global business mentors
  • Strengthen strategy, leadership and business management skills to foster sustained growth
  • Develop a toolkit of soft skills, including self-confidence, resilience, collaboration, and global communication to grow as a leader and successful entrepreneur
