Applications call for yher Pacific Islands Program 2020
yher supports game-changing, women-led impact ventures that are improving the lives of people living in poverty across the Pacific Islands region. This program provides the region’s most promising women entrepreneurs with access to the skills, knowledge, connections, funding, and community they need to build sustainable and scalable ventures.
The Progam has three different stages
You will begin your yher program journey by attending a one-week immersive ‘accelerator’ experience in Fiji. Here, you will meet like-minded women entrepreneurs from across the region and together go through an intensive week of training. This presents a unique opportunity for you to step out of the day to day activities of your business, and spend a full week working and reflecting on your business as well as focusing on yourself as a leader. By the end of the week, two entrepreneurs will also have been awarded funding. Your accelerator journey will be facilitated and supported by our local team as well as one of our global facilitators, all who are women entrepreneurs and are invested in seeing you succeed.
After having spent a week deep-diving your business under the palms of Fiji, you will return home energized and ready to start implementing your newly acquired ideas and insights. The yher team will continue to be there to support you. For 6 months, you will have access to monthly coaching calls, small grants, resources, connections and more.
And that’s not all. At the end of the support phase, we will work with the entrepreneurs who have made the most progress and have been the most engaged and proactive to apply for further funding from yher.
A total of $10,000 AUD in prize funding is awarded at the High Tea event to the winners of our peer review and audience votes. An additional $40,000 AUD total in grant funding or investment will be awarded at the end of the 6 months program between the two most promising ventures.
