Lionesses of Africa Annual Conference 2017
6 September 2017 | Inanda Club, Johannesburg, South Africa
By Invitation Only | Free For Invited Women Entrepreneurs
Celebrating the Best of Women's Entrepreneurship in Africa
“Our conference is unique in that it’s for Africa’s women entrepreneurs by women entrepreneurs. Women do all the talking here! It’s about women coming together to shape our own agenda. It’s about a frank assessment of where we’re at, what the key challenges are, and how we get them sorted. It’s about finding ways to accelerate the next generation of great women-led businesses that Africa so badly needs. Importantly, it’s also a great opportunity to come together to celebrate our many successes; and, obviously to connect to do more business with each other across the continent. It most definitely avoids the tired rhetoric and ‘conference speak’ that bores us all to tears. It’s surely anything but same old, same old!”
— Melanie Hawken, founder & CEO, Lionesses of Africa
