Women Owned Business Access to Finance Guide Pre-Launch
We are launching a user-friendly guide dedicated to providing women-owned businesses with all they need to know to be successful when engaging with funders and investors.
In order to effectively overcome systematic and socioeconomic issues that make it challenging for women to access funding and investment, dialogue and understanding between women-owned businesses and funders is imperative. The pre-launch of the Women-Owned Business Access to Finance Guide will serve as an opportunity for this dialogue to take place and for us to co-create a guide that will meet the true needs of women-owned businesses looking for funding.
At the pre-launch of the Women-Owned Businesses Access to Finance Guide we will host the financial institutions and finance experts who have contributed to the guide and provide an opportunity for you to engage directly with them about various challenges you are currently facing.
You should attend…
- If you have applied for finance and been unsuccessful or partially successful
- If you have questions about accessing funding
- If you don’t know what questions to ask but know that you want to access funding to grow
- If you have been building your business with your own money and feel like it’s time for the next level
- If you are struggling to navigate this area in general and want to empower yourself with knowledge
Exclusive opportunity for attendees
We will be selecting a handful of businesses to bring on board for one-on-one business development support provided by award-winning enterprise and supplier development organization, Property Point Venture Catalyst. Property Point has been building sustainable businesses for over 13 years, and is fully equipped to help businesses identify gaps that may be leading to funding challenges as well as to ensure you are accessing the correct type of funding for you.
Context of this initiative
In 2021 Property Point was awarded the African Women Empowerment Fund (AWEF) grant through the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) to implement a 12-month Investment Readiness and Access to Finance Programme. The key objective is to provide pre and post-investment/funding support to women-owned businesses seeking growth and working capital finance in the property and construction sector. Property Point has appointed eTTP to implement this project.
