SHE by Spark*


Applications are now OPEN for SHE by Spark* 2016.


We are excited to announce that again in 2016, we will be running SHE by Spark* – a unique accelerator program designed to find and support organisations that are improving the lives of women and girls in South Africa and Kenya.

Why SHE?

We run SHE by Spark* because we know that women are a safe bet and we believe that they are the best levers for change. We also know that female led organisations need help. Only 8% of small-medium enterprises are run by women, and more than 90% of these fail in their first three years.

We want to change these numbers.
