The Senegal Women and Energy initiative supports university establishments and incubators in the promotion of female entrepreneurship in Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency. For this, enpact tailored its capacity building programme, the Programme Designers’ Lab (PDL), and curated different modules to empower Senegalese ecosystem enablers. Through PDL, we support the participating institutions in the design, preparation and implementation plans for their projects to promote female entrepreneurship in Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency and to strengthen their key role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
To achieve this, the PDL is divided into three modules, each including workshops as well as webinars and online coaching sessions. Due to the current situation and restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the first and second module will take place online, while we hope to host the third one in Berlin.
In July 2020, the Programme Designers’ Lab (PDL) Senegal held its first online “Design Sprint” bootcamp with 20 ecosystem leaders from 4 different universities across Senegal, who created 4 new programmes to promote female entrepreneurship in the field of Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency.
The PDL is designed around three interlinked modules:
- Due to the current restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Module I is organised online in the form of a 3-day virtual bootcamp.
- Module II will take place over a 3-month period with tailor-made interactive online workshops, combined with group as well as individual assignments on our eLearning platform.
- Module III concludes the programme with a 2-day bootcamp to help the teams finalise their project ideas and prepare for pitching their projects to relevant stakeholders on a demo day.
Stay tuned for updates on the programme progress, behind the scenes from the workshops, and insights from participants on the enpact social media channels!
