THE BOLD Mentorship Program cohort 1 of 2023 is supported by The Bold Woman Fund and a grant from the Segal Family Foundation. 


Application Deadline: 17:00, Friday, 27th October 2023. 


The Bold Woman Fund is an initiative by Bold in Africa to create opportunities for young women entrepreneurs in the fashion and home décor industry. The organisation is committed to supporting African designers in scaling their businesses and expanding retail avenues for their collections and in turn, the future of the fashion and home decor industry.

The Bold Internship is the flagship program of The Bold Woman Fund. It is a call for final year students in Fashion and Design Schools looking to learn the practical skills they need to translate the theory they have learnt in the classroom into real tangible skill sets that are essential in the workplace. 

The Curriculum will run over a period of 8 weeks (two months). Each week the fellows will train them in topics that are essential to start a business in the fashion and home decor industry.


Sessions will be held *once a week* From 10am - 1pm, on Wednesdays only, starting Wednesday 1st November 2023 and finishing Wednesday 20th December 2023.
