You are never too small to have an impact

At Lionesses of Africa, we are constantly delighted by the power of women startups in Africa to punch well above their weight in their various sectors, demonstrating a tenacity and complete self belief that belies their size. From women solo-preneurs who have a passion for what they do and a drive to succeed that many a corporate would envy - through to the social entrepreneurs that believe wholeheartedly that individuals really can make a difference when it comes to finding solutions to some of Africa’s biggest challenges. There are so many great examples of small enterprises with big ideas making a huge impact. In fact, it reminds us of a great quote by the great UK entrepreneur, human rights activist and environmental campaigner, Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop. She said: “If you think you’re too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito.”
