HerVenture, a business development mobile application for female entrepreneurs, has been launched in Kenya.

The app was launched by Cherie Blaire Foundation for Women and DHL Express.

The platform aims at helping female entrepreneurs digitise and transform their businesses into thriving enterprises.

The launch was an exclusive virtual event that saw Cherie Blair and Kenyan Cabinet Secretary for the Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Professor Margret Kobia in attendance.

HerVenture will come with a new e-commerce learning track to support women entrepreneurs with business digitization through COVID-19 and will benefit 10,000 women entrepreneurs in Kenya.

“Networks are crucial to women entrepreneurs, and now, during this global pandemic connecting women who are into small to medium enterprises online is more critical than ever,” said Lulu Nunn, a senior communications manager at Cherie Blair Foundation for Women.

She added that the app is a vital tool to assist women who have the potential to become employers and create wealth in their communities, to grow and sustain their businesses.

HerVenture also allows users to find and connect with one other as well as learn about local business events.

The app is available on Google Play Store for Android users only, and is provided in easy-to-understand formats such as quizzes and videos.

The app will also be piloted in South Africa soon but is currently accessible in Vietnam, Indonesia, Nigeria and currently Kenya.

Cherie Blair Foundation for Women aims to extend their initiative to Rwanda in 2021.
