SPRING & WFNA ACCELERATION PROGRAM

WHAT IS IT

The WFAA Program is designed to provide advanced support for Albanian female founders to explore opportunities for business expansion regionally and globally. Through our 3-month program, we offer intensive bootcamp weeks, virtual sessions with industry-leading experts, individual support from experience mentors and investors within Europe and North America, and get you investment-ready.

DEMO DAY

The cumulation of everything learned during the program will be showcased during a final bootcamp week ending with a demo day. The Demo Day brings together our female entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, donors, sponsors, and the wider community to showcase the achievements made throughout the Program. Demo Day is the time for each startup to showcase the achievements made throughout the intense months of the accelerator program.
