Some of these 'lionesses' are well known, instantly recognisable names and brands in the world of business, industry and social entrepreneurship in Africa.  Others may not be household names yet, but are equally an inspiration due to their stories, their tenacity, their imagination, their triumph over adversity and their entrepreneurial success that has earned them accolades both at home and abroad.  

Lionesses of Africa is being written to recognise and applaud each of these women entrepreneurs on the continent, to celebrate their achievements, and to inspire new generations of young women entrepreneurs in Africa who will follow in their footsteps.
