Women entrepreneurs around the world are shattering all traditional limitations. In this edition of Business Elites Africa magazine, we present voices of the top 30 African women executives and influencers.
The pursuit of equal opportunity has been a driver for women entrepreneurs, and the quest to level the playing field has not been an easy task.
These women have shown resolve to aspire, achieve and attain greatness against all odds. Noteworthy are the stories of Linda Ikeji – the unstoppable billionaire blogger and a woman of steel at heart; Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala – a Nigerian-American economist and international development expert, and Magda Wierzycka – the CEO of Sygnia and South Africa’s richest woman.
Other powerful women featured in this edition are; Tabitha Karanja – the unconventional entrepreneur who continues to make an indelible mark in a multinational dominated industry; Joyce Ojemudia of African Alliance, a force to reckon with in the Nigerian insurance industry; Charlette N’ Guessan, Salwa Idrissi Akhanouch, known as the “queen of franchises and luxury business”; and Chimamanda Adichie- Award-winning novelist, to mention a few.
