FemBioBiz Training: ‘How to reach new markets using digital platforms’

FemBioBiz Season 4 aims to provide training to female-led enterprises on how to reach new markets using digital platforms.

The Division of Science, Technology, and Innovation (DSTI) and Female in Biotechnology Business (FemBioBiz) is calling for applications for training in FemBioBiz. FemBioBiz is funded by AUDA-NEPAD SANBio with the support of the BioFISA II Boost Programme, a Finnish-Southern African Partnership Programme to strengthen the SANBionetwork.

The FemBioBiz season 4 focuses on training for resilience and imparting skills and knowledge to enterprises, academia, students, government and civil society on how to use technology to support their enterprises for scale and impact. The premise for the outputs and activities conducted stem from the fact that IF skills and knowledge is provided to regional stakeholders on the use of technology and innovations as the world transitions to the new normal, THEN all tiers of society can work together for economic transformation and no one is left behind. Some of the outputs will address issues of gender, youth and equality through existing SANBio Programmes such as FemBioBiz. For the past 3 years SANBio and its partners have delivered the FemBioBiz program, and a survey of the coordinators has shown that for higher impact the businesses would need to trade more on digital platforms.
