Web3 Ladies, an African startup that is on a mission to onboard over 100,000 ladies in African to blockchain over 3 years, is partnering with Polygon towards this mission.
In the partnership, Polygon will come on board as a sponsor for the cohort 3 mentorship program that is run by Web3 Ladies. Having already mentored 350 ladies in cohorts 1 and 2, the organization expects to add to the quality of their training.
Here is an excerpt from what Enebeli Oluchi, Founder of Web3 ladies, concerning the new partnership:
