The first-of-its-kind Accelerator was a groundbreaking step forward in Zambia’s countrywide effort toward financial inclusion.
One week. 17 Zambian C-level bankers from 6 banks and the Bank of Zambia. 3 development financial institutions: FMO, Arise, and Norfund. 6 local entrepreneurs. 3 FWX dialogue makers. The Minister of Finance. And all their allies.
The entrepreneurs left with a powerful network of allies, and the bankers obtained invaluable insights on how to create real solutions for systemic change. But our work does not end here. The Bank of Zambia has requested to roll out our program nationally across the entire banking sector, and FutureWomenX will be facilitating a Master Class for FutureMakers for Alumni participants to build their next level capacity.
