We love all women-led startups and the stories of the women behind them.

We bring you Startup Stories from women across Africa who have taken the plunge and launched their own ventures. Some stories talk of multi-million dollar business triumphs, whilst others are about women fighting to lift themselves, their families, or their communities out of economic hardship. All, however, involve bravery, belief, courage, hope and determination. They are real stories about real women pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams: working hard, confronting challenges head-on, and making sacrifices. Without exception, the women behind these stories are all 'Lionesses of Africa'.


Why not share your personal startup story? Who knows how many women your story might touch and inspire. We've made it really easy for you to do. Start now.
