  • What is the EA WEXA Programme?

    We believe that entrepreneurship is the catalyst / key foundation for the social and economic development of any nation on the African continent.  The commitment of Entrepreneur Africa in 17 selected Africa countries is to identify, to mentor, to coach, to train (skills development) and fund about 14,000 – 28 000 aspiring women entrepreneurs who are capable of helping themselves, who are go getters, able to change and solve their social economic problems and do intra-trading on the continent.

    The program runs for 12 months for Idea stage entrepreneurs and 8-month start-up that started without any knowledge on how things works but took a leap of faith.

  • Why does funding not come first?

    The mind is the most important thing that God has ever given a human being, everything happens first in the mind before any responding to anything. We don’t need entitlement minds and aid mentality among our entrepreneurs. It is important for entrepreneurs to build a definite footing for their businesses through training and understanding how things works. That way, when we do fund them, they will use the funds for what is intended for and they will be able to use what they have learned to innovatively grow their businesses.
