Thank You All: A Successful Fund Open Day!
The entire HEVA Team would like to thank all the creative and cultural entrepreneurs who came to our Fund Open Day to learn more about the Young Women in Creative Enterprise Fund and the Growth Fund! We were very glad to be able to hear your thoughts, analyses and reflections, and answer your questions, as well as discuss the growing creative and cultural sector in Kenya and the region with you all.
In the morning, we met with the cohort that was interested in the Young Women in Creative Enterprise Fund. This dynamic session focused on the eligibility criteria of the fund, and many of the attendants were also interested in the type of business support that would be offered alongside the direct financial investments. The results of this discussion can be found here.
The afternoon meeting was with the Growth Fund group, who were excited to learn about the multiple ways a successful application would be flexible to their business needs. Most of them wanted to learn more about the possibilities for path to market, as well as discussing the possibilities for top-ups for purchase order financing, learning opportunities and more.
We want to thank everyone who came for the Fund Open Day, for giving us your time, honesty and help in making sure HEVA does the best it possibly for creative and cultural entrepreneurs! Kindly note that the Young Women in Creative Enterprise Fund and the Growth Fund are still open for applications. We look forward to receiving your submissions for both!
