The selected women will take part in a bespoke programme over the course of 3 months to enable them to meet their business goals, with specialist training and coaching provided by FFI, in addition FFI will work with Accenture to explore areas that they can support the entrepreneurs with.
Aysha Tegally, Co-Founder and CEO of FFI said “FFI are excited to work with Accenture to enable Mauritian women who are running businesses with a positive environmental impact to seize opportunities, build their network, access training and build the skills they need to grow and scale their businesses. We know women are leading change in the innovation, environmental and sustainability spaces. This partnership will create real change by ensuring that women are empowered and inspired to build businesses in these sectors.”
“We have chosen to work with FFI because of their vast experience in supporting women entrepreneurs and investors. We share a common goal of making a difference. This cooperation will positively impact women, and create jobs and opportunities in a meaningful way that will lead to long-term change,” said Shalini Jugessur, managing director, Accenture.
