2022 impact

  • Funding to support an essential aspect of the business improving growth and sustainability for the ten selected enterprises. 

  • Training, mentorship, and other support during and after the four-month accelerator program.

  • Provide lifetime access to HerMeNow foundation’s resources and network of entrepreneurs including mentors, investors, alumni and staff.

  • Demo day exposure and other investor connections.


Couldn't agree more with all credit being given to the Bloom team! Completely amazing level of support / understanding / acceptance. Just worried now no other accelerator will live up to this!

The Accelerator phase lasted eight weeks. We covered four modules: two weeks per module and one weekly training session. The program culminated in an in-person Dubai retreat for our Accelerator finalists and the HerMeNow and Bloom teams. 



We selected ten finalists to enter the HMNA2 Accelerator Phase of the program. We engaged ten mentors to support our teams throughout the program and four trainers to deliver the technical sessions designed per the teams’ needs.

Net Promoter Score

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a metric used to quantify a company's customer loyalty, contentment, and excitement. It is derived by asking, "How likely are you to recommend this product/service to someone else?"

The module opened our minds to a deep understanding of our customers/clients. At the moment, our main source of income is from individual clients. However, we’re considering expanding our domain in 2 more areas.

I have achieved so much so far. I have been stretched, but it would have taken me so many years to even get to where I am because of this accelerator. I am grateful especially for the sessions and the mentors. The support from @Sarah AA and her responsiveness are unmatched. I am forever grateful to all of you ladies. I learn a lot from your questions, and you have all been great learning and teammates.
