    Founding Women


    Published by ATBN, Founding Women is a book which shares the inspiring entrepreneurship stories of 20 African women building businesses in technology

    The book’s author and editor Eunice Baguma Ball, founder of ATBN said “African women in tech are not often visible particularly as we are so under-represented in the sector. Founding Women is about highlighting role models to show young women and girls across Africa , that technology is for them and that they too can become a technology entrepreneur if they want to."

    Impact Startup Lab

    ATBN partnered with BluPoint to pilot their offline internet technology solution which provides access to digital content in areas with no internet.

    We developed the Impact Startup Lab, online hub of videos and resources to support African entrepreneurs to launch high-impact businesses.

    We piloted the technology with entrepreneurs in Ghana and plan to roll out these hubs in partnership with local organisations supporting entrepreneurs particularly where access to the internet may be challenge.

    Gender-Lens Innovation

    We advise and support development practioners and social innovators in developing innovative solutions to address the specific needs of women and girls.
    Through an interactive sessions, participants are equipped with tools for using a ‘gender-lens’ approach to ensure that their businesses and organisations incorporate the women’s needs and concerns as part of their innovation processes, rather than as an afterthought.

    We have facilitated Gender-Lens Innovation workshops at various platforms including Planet Earth Institute and Diaspora Doing Development conferences.
