(CTN News) – As part of next year’s initiatives, Google has unveiled three initiatives that will work to empower women entrepreneurs in Africa through a series of programs that will be launched over the next 12 months.

Besides the accelerator, the program also includes Hustle Academy for Women-Led Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, Google for Startups Accelerator Africa: Women Founders Cohort, as well as a social media series intended to highlight inspiring women in the tech sector in Africa.
