DigiFemmes is said to combines an innovative, yet proven pedagogical approach to skills training with a built-in sustainability mechanism to ensure that the programme is impactful, scalable, and sustainable.

The model follows a systems-thinking approach and works with existing W-SMEs on addressing the data and digital skills needed to grow their businesses. Helping new W-SMEs gain digital skills to launch and validate their businesses or increase their employability, the programme is also supported by a supportive ecosystem of stakeholders such as governments, investors, and entrepreneurship support organisations.

DigiFemmes aims to create a more supportive environment for skill development in female founders. It is implemented by consortium partners SAFEEM, Seedstars Côte d’Ivoire, Empow’Her Côte d’Ivoire, ​​Dalberg, and Edu01. The program is funded by the US Government’s USAID and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), in partnership with Microsoft.
