Within the framework of “Female Shift”, the Business Scouts for Development (BSfD) programme aims to create digital offers for African and German women entrepreneurs and set up a mutual mentoring programme. Join the mentoring programme by sending in the mentoring questionnaire to [email protected]

The influence of women in society, business and politics is growing, but in terms of leadership positions, earning and career opportunities, the gender gap is still strongly noticeable. This also applies to the start-up area: female founders are still underrepresented and find it difficult to access financing through venture capital or scaling-up. The corona pandemic is also hitting women worldwide much more severely than men. This is especially true for developing and emerging countries. But it is precisely there that the potential of female start-ups is great: societal challenges are tackled here with socio-ecological innovations.


We – the team behind – work for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). is a free online platform that facilitates collaboration between the private sector and development cooperation.
