Female Tech Businesses in Africa (FEBA) fosters capacity-building, network development, and the internationalization of women networks, multipliers, and stakeholders in Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.

Nine participants who submitted program proposals were invited to a five-day bootcamp in Berlin, Germany, between August 19th and 23rd, 2019, where they received support in shaping and improving their own programs for female tech businesses and women networks in their countries. After the bootcamp, the participants had another week to implement their learnings into a final program proposal, and to compete for the application for funding support.
