The Women Entrepreneurs booklet features the insights from 23 of the most inspiring women entrepreneurs, who are all developing innovative new products for the mobile, education, clean technology, retail and media sectors.
Every day, innovative women entrepreneurs are emerging throughout the developing world. These women are spearheading companies, creating jobs, and driving the charge toward gender equality.
Entrepreneurs are a rare breed. Creative, ambitious, and versatile, they are outgoing, comfortable with change, and see opportunities where many others only see challenges. These characteristics and more are why entrepreneurs are able to create innovative business models that drive economic growth, and why finding new and better ways of supporting them was a primary focus of infoDev’s 5th Global Forum on Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship, which took place in East London, South Africa at the end of May.
The Dragons' Den Pitching Competition was an opportunity to celebrate entrepreneurial success through the global stage of infoDev's 5th Global Forum and enable entrepreneurs to benefit from this celebration. It brought together promising entrepreneurs from Africa and other developing regions to compete for awards, and connect them with mentors, angels, coporate partners, and other high growth entrepreneurs from around the globe.
