Girl Effect Accelerator

Girl Effect Accelerator

First accelerator dedicated to girls in poverty.

Accelerator/Incubator | Africa | Equality & Empowerment/Minorities/Previously Excluded Populations

 

Overview

The Girl Effect Accelerator represents the first program of its kind: an international accelerator dedicated exclusively to scaling up ventures that are measurably benefiting girls in poverty. Today, less than two cents of every international development dollar goes to girls – the very people who could do most to end poverty. As long as girls remain invisible, the world misses out on a tremendous opportunity for change. They have launched this program to make girls visible to the entrepreneurial, business, and investment worlds.
