Strategies for Incubators and Accelerators - Strengthening Ecosystems for Women Climate Entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa

World University Services of Canada (WUSC)

Women entrepreneurs are critical to a thriving and inclusive economy, and yet they face numerous challenges in growing their businesses.

The report identifies challenges and opportunities for women climate entrepreneurs, defined as those whose locally available, contextually appropriate goods and services prioritize or significantly contribute to mitigation of and/or adaptation to climate change, with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa - specifically, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa and Malawi.

Following a presentation of key findings, a series of recommendations are provided. The recommendations primarily target incubators and accelerators, given their vital role in advancing the capacity of WCEs to innovate and scale.
