About the programme

AccelerateHer is a female-focused career mentorship accelerator that aims to equip young aspiring executives with the necessary tools and experience to broaden their knowledge and reach in the industry and play a more active role in shaping the future of the financial landscape.

In its fifth cohort, we are opening applications to young women from different organizations within the Financial Services sector. These are young women are at an early stage of their career and are seeking mentorship and advise from seasoned professionals in the industry, allowing them to develop both professionally and personally.

The shortlisted group of women would be exposed to a diverse range of experiences and would be able to build their network, skills and knowledge through gaining access to the different activities at DIFC FinTech Hive such as mentorship, workshops, networking opportunities and more.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the format of the programme will be virtual, with the option for you to be on-site at our co-working space in Dubai, if possible.
