Share a little about your entrepreneurial journey. And, do you come from an entrepreneurial background?
Three years ago I founded a company in Addis Ababa called WeDeliver - an on-demand delivery company which delivers food and other items to customers' doorsteps. I have gained invaluable experience when it comes to the startup scene. I have learnt it takes a lot of work and patience to succeed as an entrepreneur. The key is to keep going even when things do not go your way. I am now embarking on another journey - running a consulting firm.

One of the more challenging aspects of running a business for any entrepreneur is ensuring the foundation is solid and the financial management is sound. That often requires the need to access the right kind of specialist advice and information that comes from experienced professionals who can give the right guidance when needed. Bitania Amare, founder of Orbit Consulting is bringing that specialist support to her clients on a highly professional, tailored basis, helping them to grow and thrive. --- Melanie Hawken, founder and ceo of Lionesses of Africa
