African women have shattered the glass ceiling. They continue to shine on the global stage, especially in business, proving to the next generation that greatness is attainable regardless of your gender, colour or race.
Business Elites Africa (BEA) is thrilled to tell the amazing stories of these women anytime the opportunity presents itself. In our December 2020 issue, we chronicled the 50 Most Influential African Women in Business, who have gone through storms and came out unscathed.
In this edition, we featured the likes of Dr. Amel Karboul – Tunisia’s first woman Minister – who defies conventional thinking and happy to challenge any regressive structure or institution.
“I think perhaps that I am many things because I refuse to be put into one particular box. I reject stereotypical thinking and have taken on many roles where I didn’t the mold”, Dr. Karboul says in an interview with the BEA team (see on page 8).
Other outstanding individuals featured are Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, ex-Nigerian Finance Minister, industry titan and one of the finest minds in the field of economics; Folorunsho Alakija, entrepreneur extraordinaire and a woman with a mind of steel; Ibukun Awosika, Africa’s most bankable business mind; Kofo Akinkugbe of SecureID, a niche thinker; Baratang Miya, a renowned tech social entrepreneur; and many more.
You will also find articles and business reports carefully curated to help you attain greater heights in your field of business.
At Business Elites Africa, we are determined to anchor SMEs in Africa through our platform.
We understand that the road ahead will not be easy. The rigors and pains in the process, we believe, is a recipe for success. Transformational change is not a cakewalk. It calls for determination and bravery.
As the curtain of 2020 draws to a close, it presents an immense opportunity for entrepreneurs and business managers to retool, re-engineer, and reimagine their business roadmaps. Becoming a company of the future is the way forward.
