DFID, USAID, and Nike Foundation – with strategic support from Girl Effect – have partnered to create the business accelerator SPRING to reach girls with products and services that improve their economic outcomes. Economic empowerment is fundamental to achieving girls’ basic human rights.
SPRING identifies and supports ventures that can bring life-enhancing products and services to this population, providing comprehensive business model development and support – including Human-Centred Design prototyping, grants, investment guidance, global and local mentor matching, and access to a pool of experts and legal expertise – to its participants.
Fightback was assessed to be the most impactful program in terms of both scalability of the enterprise and the impact of the program. Our founder was nominated as a brand ambassador for Spring Accelerator for which he represented Spring in multiple international seminars and events.
