This innovative project saw 100 East African women entrepreneurs win business services and access to funding. ACfA’s team helped design the crowdfunding segment of the competition, “2X Crowd”, presented a Masterclass “Using Crowdfunding to raise funds for your business” to winners in Kigali and provides further trainings through the online 2XConnect platform. This was a 2XChallenge project, a multi-development agency commitment to reducing gender inequality.
