The whole concept of entrepreneurship, by its very nature, is empowering, and therefore it stands to reason that if more women in Africa are encouraged and supported in realising their own entrepreneurial dreams and aspirations, then the continent will benefit. Through entrepreneurship, women are free to follow their dreams, test their ideas, not be the vehicles to delivering someone else’s vision, and as a result, encourage a new ‘can do’ era of entrepreneurship and innovation in their communities and countries. Women’s entrepreneurship in Africa can act as a catalyst for greater empowerment and positive change. So, surely its time to provide the right support, particularly in terms of mentorship and access to funding, to ensure that women-led enterprises can flourish. It's time to recognize and value women-owned businesses, and acknowledge that an investment in women's entrepreneurship can and will change Africa for the better.
