Launch and Grow is an entrepreneurial leadership program for Kenyan women promoted by the Women for Africa Foundation in partnership with Babson College and Banco Santander. It is a project aimed at both emerging women entrepreneurs and established businesswomen. The overall objective is to offer the beneficiaries (typically 7 senior and 7 junior entrepreneurs in each cohort) a unique learning experience specifically designed to boost the success of their businesses.

The program includes a one-week intensive course taught by Babson College at its campus in Boston, USA, as well as a year-long mentoring process that helps them develop concrete initiatives designed by them during their training in Boston and aimed at producing a social impact.
