The Girls Who Mean Business Show, May 2019.

Uncategorized - Seunfunmi Bolarinwa - March 19, 2019

A congress of fired up women ready to take over the business space in Africa.

On Saturday, 4th of May 2019, The Girl Entrepreneur will be hosting the Maiden Edition of its show, Girls who mean business. 


The Girls who mean business show is a free meet up event organized specifically for women startup owners who are interested in building lasting, successful businesses in the African Diaspora.

The show is born out of a passion to see more thriving and blossoming businesses being run by African entrepreneurs. We intend to start a revolution that will transform the entire business climate in Africa with special focus on women.

We believe that time’s up for women being known for owning mediocre businesses and we are organizing these series of shows to see to that.

Via this talk show, we intend to fortify attendees with information, opportunities and ideas to create their dream businesses.

The GWMB show is a learn and share avenue for women to talk, network, pour their hearts out about the challenges they’re facing, then, glean practical ideas to scale through the milestones. GWMB is not a one-man show, it is a congress of passionate women gearing towards a revolution in how business is done in Africa.
