Rise – the innovation hub owned by Absa – has launched the Rise Scalarator focused on Black Female Founders in the Western Cape. The Rise Scalarator is geared to play a crucial role in the global call-to-action to fix the leaky teach pipeline by actively focusing on Women-In-Tech.

Rise is a global start-up community pioneering financial services and unlocking Africa’s potential, and through this network innovators and entrepreneurs gain the support and resources to help fast-track their personal and professional goals through mentorship and collaboration, access to markets, as well as extensive learning and skills development opportunities across sectors.

The programme is designed to focus on the Female Founder holistically, the Female Founders have access to an Advisory Board, a Business Coach, financial management and modeling tools as well as access to a world-class network by being based at Rise Cape Town for the duration of the programme. We co-created the programme with Absa and look forward to journeying with them to world-class.
