If there’s one thing thing that stands out for me when it comes to women entrepreneurs, it’sthat they understand the true value of giving back. I don’t necessarily mean this in a monetary sense, although many successful women entrepreneurs are very generous in terms of investing in and supporting fellow women-owned businesses. I mean instead that they are extremely generous with their time, giving back in the form of supporting key projects and initiatives, attending events, and networking at meetings. They are wonderful at making introductions to potential clients, business partners or advisors. And, most importantly, they are great at giving encouragement when the going gets tough, sharing valuable insights as to how they overcame the hurdles on their own business journeys. In the world of women’s entrepreneurship in Africa, giving back can be one of the most rewarding and important things to do - it’s what makes us an amazing community.
