OUR IMPACT PARTNERS. HELPING TO DELIVER IMPACT AT SCALE.
POWER OF PARTNERSHIP. TOGETHER WE CAN EMPOWER ONE MILLION WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS ACROSS AFRICA.
We believe that women's entrepreneurship can help tackle Africa's challenges, transform communities, create jobs, spur economic growth and close the gender opportunity gap.
We also believe our programmes with the support of our Impact Partners have the potential to spark a movement far greater than each of us, and that this movement can lead to transformative change for Africa's women entrepreneurs.

"Our Impact Partners share our belief that Africa needs more successful women entrepreneurs, and that Africa's women entrepreneurs need all of us. Our Impact Partners join our mission: provide the support, tools and inspiration required to ensure that all women-led startups across Africa have the chance to flourish."

LET'S TALK PARTNERSHIP. LET'S MAKE AN IMPACT TOGETHER.
Join our mission to drive large-scale change by empowering ONE MILLION Women Entrepreneurs across Africa.
3 Key reasons why I believe women entrepreneurs can be incredibly impactful agents for change across Africa:
1. Africa has the highest levels of women’s entrepreneurship in the world - entrepreneurial energy abounds across the continent and needs to be better supported and harnessed.
2. Africa's women entrepreneurs are potentially amazing engines for economic growth and job creation - driving the two biggest employing sectors, agriculture and the artisan sector.
3. Africa's women entrepreneurs are the most effective agents for productively and equitably distributing economic growth - women plough back 90 cents of every additional dollar of income into 'human resources', which includes their families’ education, health, and nutrition (compared to 30–40% for men).
Lionesses of Africa believes Women Entrepreneurs can be at the centre of correcting inequality on the African continent. Together with our Impact Partners we're on a mission to help them and their businesses achieve their full potential, so they in turn can fuel much needed social change and economic growth.
Empowering women through entrepreneurship is such an important opportunity. I hope you decide to join our Impact Partner community so we can start creating impact together!
