    Rising Tide Africa Accelerator, an accelerator program run by women-led angel investment network, Rising Tide Africa, is opening applications for its fifth cohort, seeking passionate and ambitious female-led and gender-diverse startups. The accelerator program is sector-agnostic, focusing on innovation, sustainability, and growth to empower businesses in today’s competitive landscape.

    Empowering Women in Investment

    Founded in 2016 by Yemi Keri and Ndidi Nnoli-Edozien, Rising Tide Africa aims to educate and empower women to become angel investors. Through mentoring, networking, and investment opportunities, the organization is fostering a new generation of female investors who are actively shaping the African entrepreneurial landscape.

    Ivana Osagie, a founding member of Rising Tide Africa, emphasized the network’s commitment to not only providing capital but also offering mentorship, networking opportunities, and industry expertise to support the growth of the startups in their portfolio.

    The initiative addresses the persistent gender gap in access to finance, particularly in Africa, where women face disproportionate barriers in accessing financial resources. By providing women with agency and investment opportunities, Rising Tide Africa is working towards a more inclusive and equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem.
