Accélératrice de projets d’Entreprenariat Social en Afrique Subsaharienne

Weconomy Impact

Anesvad Foundation is launching Weconomy Impact to promote Social Entrepreneurship initiatives in Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Ghana, specifically to combat Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).

Nous croyons qu’il existe une autre manière plus juste, collaborative et équitable de générer le développement en Afrique, et nous cherchons pour cela des entreprises et des projets visant à avoir par leur activité un impact social dans le continent africain.

Meet the 3 selected projects

They train, finance and support the women identified throughout the process of setting up their activity.

Helix Biogen Institute

Nigeria

Helix Biogen Institute is a firm dedicated to promoting excellence and competence in the field of “Omics” and Molecular Biology.
