The SHEignites Greenpreneur Program seeks to implement a green sector Hackathon for 100+ female entrepreneurs and support 15 selected teams to develop their sustainable solutions over 11 months.


We are calling for aspiring female leaders between 18-35 to combat climate change and improve the lives of future generations!

In Rwanda, the effects of global warming and climate change can be devastating, including food and water scarcity, weather catastrophies and health effects. New innovations in sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, environmental conservation and financial systems are needed to combat climate change and mitigate the effects to Rwandans. Women are crucial to bring a new perspective, yet, women climate entrepreneurs are rare in the current ecosystem. We are building a new generation of female greenpreneurs to bring new businesses to life and set an example for aspiring young girls.


The SHEignites Greenpreneur Program will begin with a green sector Hackathon to educate and ideate with 100+ female entrepreneurs on January 20-21, 2022.


We will select 15 winning teams for an 11-month incubation program including:

  • Capacity building workshops in entrepreneurship and business
  • 1:1 coaching and mentoring
  • Free workspace at the WSHK that comes with access to meeting rooms, fast internet and many more amenities
  • Access to a pan-African and international network
  • Access to finance and investors
  • Marketing & communication support
  • Launch of product/service into the ecosystem
